January 5, 2023
A Tumwater woman was hospitalized after the vehicle she was driving collided with a log truck last Friday afternoon near Nassa Point.
Nancy Knofler, 66, was headed westbound on SR 4 in a Subaru Outback on Friday around noon when her vehicle crossed the center line near milepost 39 and collided head on with an eastbound log truck driven by Fabian Hohn, 38, of South Bend.
Hohn, who was wearing a seatbelt, was uninjured, according to a report from the Washington State Patrol. Emergency responders had to extricate Knofler from her vehicle, and LifeFlight transported her to Oregon Health and Sciences University hospital in Portland where she was treated for her injuries. It is unknown whether or not she was wearing a seatbelt.
Charges are under investigation. All vehicles received damage. The Subaru was impounded, and the tractor and trailer were towed.
