Roy, WA (April 30, 2021) - A multi-vehicle crash in the town of Roy left a local man injured on Wednesday, April 21.
The accident reportedly took place at around 3:20 p.m. near the intersection of WA-702 and Allen Road. Initial reports indicated that a 2018 Mercedes-Benz Sprinter van driven by 44-year-old Romeliz R. Bustillo of Lakewood was stopped at the time of the impact. A construction vehicle operated by 52-year-old Daryl W. Salhus of Spanaway failed to see the stopped van and swerved into westbound traffic.
Salhus crashed into a 1994 Chevrolet pickup truck being driven by 64-year-old Woody J. Madsen of Roy. Madsen’s truck left the roadway, and he was transported to a nearby hospital for the treatment of sustained injuries. Local authorities revealed that the crash was attributed to failure to grant the right of way.
An ongoing investigation into the collision is underway.
Our thoughts are with Woody J. Madsen and his family at this time. We hope for a full recovery.
