Three-vehicle collision leaves one in custody, another injured

A Sequim woman is in jail after driving against traffic on U.S. Highway 101 near Kitchen-Dick Road on Nov. 21 and causing a three-vehicle wreck that left one driver in serious condition.

Washington State Patrol reports Rachel Knapp, 42, of Sequim, was driving a 2000 Nissan Pathfinder southbound on Kitchen-Dick Road right before 7 p.m. Tuesday night, and entered the westbound lanes of U.S. Highway 101 and struck Robbin Mcadow, 19, of Port Angeles, in his 1993 Ford Ranger in the westbound lane. Mcadow’s vehicle rotated and hit Leslie Miller, 63, of Port Angeles, driving a 2007 Hyundai.

Mcadow was transported to Olympic Medical Center and remains in serious condition as of Wednesday afternoon.

Knapp was injured but treated on scene. She was arrested for vehicular assault and driving under the influence of alcohol and booked into Clallam County Jail. Knapp is being held with no bond. Her hearing date has not yet been set.

Knapp had a hearing at 1 p.m. Wednesday with a follow-up date to be set later in the day.

All three cars were impounded and the roadway was blocked for about six-and-half hours, State Patrol said.
