UPDATED: 2 taken to the hospital after semi truck vs pickup truck crash on N Enterprise Road

A semi truck collided with a pickup truck at N Enterprise Road and Destiny Street just north of the Y in the road to Portal Way (see map below) about 9pm tonight, July 2nd.

Whatcom County Fire District 7 fire and aid crews responded and were called upon to extricate one of the occupants from the pick up truck.

According to WCFD7 Division Chief Ben Boyko, the two occupants of the pickup were both transported to PeaceHealth St. Joseph Medical Center, one with serious injuries and the other with non-life threatening injuries. The semi truck driver was not injured.

Washington State Patrol (WSP) investigated the crash and report the blue 2017 Kenworth semi truck, driven by Mark Silves, age 52, of Bellingham, struck the driver’s side of the silver 2005 Toyota Tacoma pickup truck after the Toyota failed to stop at a stop sign and drove into traffic. The Toyota was driven by Eduardo Fernandez, age 26, of Lynden. The passenger in the Toyota was Brady Maas, age 22, of Everson.

The City recently acquired a new tool - the Drone Ranger. Here's one of its maiden voyages, flying over our recent Summer of Fun event Glow in the Dark Croquet. #FerndaleParks ... See MoreSee Less

Sweet! What kind of drone?

I think it's super awesome!

I always forget that park exists.

Is it going to be flying around all of ferndale?

Of course it's not legal to fly there, which is a problem. No fly zone!

very cool! I love drones. I need to fix mine.

Nice flying, Riley. You need a call sign...Park Ranger?

Um...shouldn't it be DARK for glow in the DARK croquet??? ...but cool toy nonetheless! 😁

I really see this purchase as a irresponsible use of taxpayer money. Also isn't Ferndale with in 5 miles of a airport?

A few weeks ago this drone was flying over main street in Ferndale, VERY low to traffic and VERY distracting! Please keep it at a more respectful height. Id hate to file a claim against City of Ferndale for causing an accident by flying "their" drone to low!

Very cool! I can think of all kinds of uses for this, to help publicize events, and make cool videos about the city!

What for? Might be a nice tool for the police department. Why was money spent on this?

Did your pilot obtain a license from the FAA to operate legally?


Now we can find out who is burning garbage....

Would it be out of the question to attach guns to the drone? People need to know that Ferndale isn't messing around any longer!
