(Port Angeles) -- Authorities say a Washington State Patrol trooper suffered minor injuries and was taken to a Port Angeles hospital after his patrol car was severely damaged in a collision with several other vehicles on U.S. Highway.
Trooper Travis Beebe was taken to Olympic Medical Center with neck and back pain. No one else was hurt in the crash on the Morse Creek Hill.
Patrol spokesman Trooper Russ Winger says Beebe was driving on Highway 101 when he saw a car speeding in the opposite direction. Winger says the trooper turned around and was trying to catch up to the speeder when he lost control on a curve and crossed into the oncoming lane.
