Car Vs. Tractor Trailer Crash On Highway 264 In Washington

A crash between an 18-wheeler and a car has sent one person to the hospital this morning.

The Highway Patrol says a car ran into the back of an 18-wheeler that had just pulled out of Cratches Mini Mart on Highway 264 West in Washington. That is close to Wharton Station Rd. The wreck was reported at 7:35 a.m. Monday. The truck driver, who was not injured, told troopers he had ample room to pull out, but the driver of the car did not slow enough.
