Report for Washington State Patrol and Skamania County Sheriff's Office



No one was injured as two semi trucks collided on July 6, 2005 at milepost 134, 34 miles east of Goldendale, on State Route 14.

Ott had stopped his vehicle while attempting to turn south onto Roosevelt Grade Road. Salcido attempted to pass Ott's vehicle in the eastbound lane and struck it in the side.

Both men were wearing seatbelts at the time of the accident.
