One person hurt in Blyn wreck

One person sustained a head injury in a two-vehicle wreck on U.S. Highway 101 near Blyn on Jan. 16, the State Patrol said.

Brian L. Priest, 52, of Sequim, was taken to Olympic Medical Center in Port Angeles with a head injury, according to a State Patrol report.

The collision occurred in the eastbound lane at about 4:46 p.m., State Patrol spokeswoman trooper Chelsea Hodgson said.

According to a State Patrol report, Priest, in a 1993 Suzuki Swift, made a U-turn into the eastbound lane and crashed into a 2000 Mercedes ML430 driven by Christian J. Anderson of Wilson, Wyo.

Anderson was uninjured in the collision.

The highway was fully blocked at milepost 272 as troopers worked to clear the road.

The State Patrol planned to charge Priest with an unsafe U-turn, according to the report.

Meanwhile, a four-car, non-injury wreck occurred in the westbound lane in the same area at about 5:25 p.m., Hodgson said.

The highway had been reopened by 5:32 p.m., Hodgson said.
