Toledo man injured in Chehalis collision

A Toledo man was injured in a hit-and-run collision on I-5 earlier this month, according to the Washington State Patrol.

On Sept. 1, a 35-year-old man from Berlin, Germany, had been driving a 1993 Chevrolet Camper Van north near Milepost 79, in Chehalis, when he failed to stop for slowing traffic and struck the rear of a 1998 Chevrolet Cavalier driven by a 53-year-old Toledo man.

The Cavalier struck the rear of a 2011 Audi sedan driven by a 29-year-old Kirland man, which struck the rear of a Black Honda Passport, which failed to stop at the scene.

The driver of the Cavalier was transported to Providence Centralia Hospital with unspecified injuries, while the driver of the camper was cited for tailgating. Authorities are still uncertain of the identity of the fourth driver.
