ELMA, WA (June 12, 2020) – Two semi-trucks collided, causing one semi to crash into two houses on Highway 12, Friday afternoon.
According to the Washington State Patrol, the incident happened about five miles southeast of Elma. Due to unknown circumstances, an eastbound semi veered into the westbound lane. Then, it struck another semi-truck that was carrying cranberries.
The impact of the crash caused the second semi to crash through a fence, two houses, and a camper trailer.
Emergency crews transported both semi-truck drivers to a hospital with non-life-threatening injuries. Meanwhile, an occupant inside the RV sustained minor injuries. However, it is unknown whether or not the houses were occupied at the time of the crash.
The truck that caused the collision blocked both lanes for several hours between Mox Chehalis Road and Porter Creek.
