Head-on crash in Washington State sends Victoria man to hospital

A Victoria man is suffering from extensive leg injuries after a three-car crash south of the border.

Christopher Sherwood, 40, the driver of one of the vehicles, was transferred to a Seattle hospital over the weekend for treatment. Six other people were treated in Port Angeles for minor injuries and released.

A Port Angeles man was taken to jail on suspicion of vehicular assault and driving under the influence of alcohol, say state troopers.

Around 7:40 p.m. Saturday night, Raymond Arndt Jr., 34, was driving east on U.S. Highway 101, about five kilometres east of Sequim, when troopers say his vehicle crossed the centreline, striking a vehicle driven by another Port Angeles man.

It then crashed head-on into Sherwood’s van. Sherwood was driving with five passengers at the time.
