Winlock driver cited after rolling vehicle
A Winlock woman was cited after rolling her vehicle with two juvenile passengers Sunday, according to the Lewis County Sheriff’s Office.
The 23-year-old driver of a 2004 Ford Focus had been traveling westbound on the 100 block of Antrim Rd., north of Winlock, when she allegedly failed to see an oncoming vehicle due to sunlight in her eyes and overcorrect to avoid a collision, causing her car to drive into the ditch. The 14-year-old and 4-year-old passengers reportedly escaped injury, though the Focus was totaled.
The driver was cited for negligent driving, second degree, as investigators determined she was likely exceeding the speed limit at the time of the collision.
Those with information about ongoing investigations are encouraged to call the Sheriff’s Office at (360) 740-1266 or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-748-6422.
