A 17-year-old Carnation boy was critically injured when the car he was driving collided head-on with a logging truck last Wednesday morning (August 3rd). The 71-year-old truck driver was not injured.
The accident occurred about 10:45 a.m. in the 11900 block of Kelly Road NE in unincorporated King County.
A 1996 Honda Accord was southbound on Kelly Road NE when the vehicle crossed the centerline into the northbound lane.
The driver of the 1991 Kenworth logging truck used hard braking while trying to swerve to the right to avoid the head-on impact but was unable to do so.
The Honda driver was airlifted to Harborview Medical Center. While critically injured, he is expected to survive.
