One injury in Highway 12 wreck

An 82-year-old Elma woman was injured when a McCleary man struck her on Highway 12 Friday morning, the Washington State Patrol reported.

Jeremy Holbrook, 35, was heading eastbound on Highway 12 when he tried to turn left onto Schouweiler Road. He struck Beverly Decker as she was heading westbound, sending her off the road, into a light pole in the shoulder.

Decker was transported to Providence St. Peter Hospital in Olympia. Holbrook was uninjured. The State Patrol found his failure to yield was the cause of the crash and cited him.
