Washougal Crash

Posted on 12th May 2014 at 16:04

The investigation into a fatal car crash Friday morning on SR 14 in Washougal is continuing, a collision that resulted in the death of Joseph Sparks, 27, of Winlock. State Troopers say that Sparks had been driving his pickup westbound at about 8:30 am, about three miles east of Washougal. As he was coming around a curve in the road, the pickup apparently drifted across the center line, sideswiping a U-Haul box truck before colliding head-on with an eastbound tractor-trailer. Sparks was declared dead at the scene, while the other two drivers were unhurt. The highway was closed for more than four hours after the crash.
