Sequim bicyclist hit, injured in collision on US Highway 101

A Sequim bicyclist was injured in a collision on U.S. Highway 101 east of Sequim on July 18, a Clallam County Fire District No. 3 official said.

Roger A. Wagner, 57, of Sequim, was taken to Olympic Medical Center with what appeared to be non-life-threatening injuries after the collision at milepost 274 near Knapp Road, Fire District 3 Assistant Chief Dan Orr said.

A Washington State Patrol report notes that a 2006 Isuzu box van driven by Robert K. Duncan, 52, of Seattle, was traveling westbound on U.S. Highway 101 approaching Knapp Road when his vehicle drifted off the road, over the fog line and onto the shoulder, striking the bicyclist. Wagner and bike came to rest in the ditch and the vehicle came to rest on the highway shoulder.

The state patrol said driving under the influence was the cause and that charges against Duncan are pending.

The westbound lane of Highway 101 was blocked near the Clallam-Jefferson County line after the wreck at 11:30 a.m., the state Department of Transportation said. Single-lane alternating traffic went into effect at 12:10 p.m., DOT officials said, and the roadway was cleared at 3:23 p.m.
