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.
