Edmonds man injured in Highway 2 collision Monday involving five cars, logging truck


A 52-year-old Edmonds man was injured Monday, Jan. 8 in a collision involving five vehicles and a logging truck on Highway 2 in Snohomish.

According to the Washington State Patrol, Vance Fisher of Edmonds was a passenger in a Ford Ecoline van — one of three vehicles that collided with a fully-loaded logging truck while traveling eastbound on Highway 2 at 11:17 a.m. Monday.

The logging truck was traveling Highway 2 westbound approaching 88th Street when an eastbound Lincoln Aviator SUV crossed the center line into the westbound lanes. The  truck swerved into the eastbound lanes to avoid a collision with the SUV, losing its load of logs and colliding with three eastbound vehicles. In addition, a fourth vehicle — a 1994 Toyota truck — ran into logging debris.

Fisher and the van’s driver –36-year-old Harold Pugh of Marysville — were taken to Providence Hospital in Everett. The driver of the Toyota truck — 19-year-old Hannah Blanciet of Sultan, was transported to Seattle’s Harborview Medical Center.

The driver of the SUV — 68-year-old Lavonne Counley of Snhomish, was also taken to Providence Medical Center. A 4-year-old girl riding in the SUV was uninjured, the state patrol said, as were the drivers of the other vehicles involved, including the logging truck.
