Investigation continues into Trooper accident near PA
December 3rd, 2013 - 5:54am
(Port Angeles) – The investigation continues into the crash that destroyed a State Patrol cruiser and damaged a number of other cars east of Port Angeles.
State Patrol officials say the agency will continue its internal investigation into why Trooper Travis Beebe crossed the center line near the Morse Creek Hill on Highway 101 Friday evening.
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 crossed the center line on the corner. No one was seriously hurt in the crash.
Beebe remains on duty while the investigation continues and the Patrol has not released any information on disciplinary action. That is not expected to come until after the investigation wraps up, which could take another week.
