Witnesses sought in snowplow crash

Detectives are looking for witnesses to a fiery fatal crash between a pickup truck and a snowplow on U.S. Highway 195 last week.

William H. Adsit, 49, of Spangle, was killed when his southbound 1994 Ford Ranger pickup collided with a snowplow truck that was stopped on the shoulder of the outside lane at 8:49 p.m. on Dec. 7.

Reports at the time said the compact truck was speeding south on U.S. 195 when it crashed into the snowplow between Hatch and Mullen Hill roads and exploded into flames.

The Washington State Patrol major accident investigation team is looking for witnesses who saw the collision "or any event leading up to or following the crash," according to a news release issued Monday.

Anyone with information is asked to call Detective Sergeant Jerry Cooper at (360) 805-1192 or Detective Curt Ladines at (360) 805-1160.
