SHELTON -- The Washington State Patrol says a man and a woman died when a tractor-trailer rig collided with a car on U.S. Highway 101 north of Shelton.
The State Patrol says the driver of a Honda Accord lost control Tuesday and the car spun, crossing the center line and colliding with an oncoming Kenworth truck hauling two empty flatbed trailers.
The 57-year-old truck driver was unhurt in the crash near Potlatch State Park.
Mason County Coroner Wes Stockwell has identified the dead as 51-year-old Mary Irene Johnson of Hoodsport and 52-year-old Richard Lee Bieniek of Hoquiam. Both were in the car.
The road was blocked for several hours. The State Patrol is investigating.
