Sequim man injured in Morse Creek collision

A Sequim man was injured Sunday, March 21, when the pickup he was driving was sideswiped on U.S. Highway 101 east of Port Angeles, the State Patrol said.

James N. Tassie, 35, was taken to Olympic Medical Center after the rollover crash near Morse Creek, troopers said.

His condition was not immediately available.

The State Patrol said Tassie was driving eastbound in a 1985 Chevrolet S10 when he was struck by a 2012 Toyota Tundra driven by Devon A. Horn, 25, of Sequim at about 4:39 p.m.

Horn and two passengers, Autumn C. Horn, 25, and a 7-year-old girl, were not injured, troopers said.

The State Patrol said Devon Horn was driving eastbound in the right lane and failed to yield as he merged when the lane came to an end.

Devon Horn was cited with improper lane use, troopers said in a collision memo.

Tassie was the lone occupant of the S10, which was destroyed in the crash.

All four people were wearing seat belts, troopers said.

Drugs or alcohol were not believed to be involved, according to the State Patrol.
