2 killed, 2 injured when car hits snow plow making U-turn

Associated Press

MONTESANO, Wash. – Two people died and two others were injured when their vehicle crashed into a snow plow that had taken a U-turn in Grays Harbor County.

The Washington State Patrol said about 2:50 a.m. Sunday, two vehicles were westbound on U.S. 12 when one of the vehicles, a snow plow dump truck, took a U-turn. An Acura Integra with four people inside crashed into the truck.

The Olympian reported that 36-year-old Michael William Crow was killed, as was 38-year-old Michelle Ann Sorensen.

A 29-year-old woman was flown to Harborview Medical Center in Seattle and a 28-year-old man was taken to Tacoma General Hospital.

All victims were from Aberdeen.

Trooper Kiesha Conan said U.S. 12 at Devonshire Road was closed for about seven hours.
