WSP Seeks Witnesses To Reckless Driving Incident In Bingen

The Washington State Patrol is seeking witnesses or information to a dangerous incident that occurred Thursday morning on Highway 14 near milepost 62 in the Bingen area.  The WSP says the Washington State Department of Transportation was conducting roadway maintenance that required a lane closure in the area just after 9 a.m.  Workers were flagging alternating traffic into one lane when a vehicle entered the construction zone, disregarding the closure.  The vehicle, a black truck cab with an open bed trailer, failed to stop for flagging crews and traveled the wrong way in the lane closure, almost going head-on with westbound traffic.  The vehicle was seen by troopers going at a high-rate of speed through the work zone, but were unable to stop the vehicle due to the safety of roadway workers and other motorists.  Troopers were able to follow the vehicle once through the construction zone south across the Interstate Bridge into Oregon.  The vehicle made additional dangerous movements by traveling across the two lane bridge the wrong way, forcing northbound traffic on the bridge to make aggressive movements to avoid head-on collisions.  Troopers would like to speak to the driver or owner of the vehicle about the dangerous incident, and are seeking witnesses who were traveling through the area, or have dash-cam video of the incidents, between 9:10 AM and 9:30 AM.  If you have information that can assist troopers in contacting the driver or owner of the pictured vehicle, please call 360-903-3965.
