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.

Week 1: Did you know that the FCSC has a brand new program? The Ferndale Community Utilities Fund launched May 15th, 2020. The purpose of this temporary program is to help neighbors who have been negatively impacted by COVID-19 pay their City of Ferndale utility bill.

Neighbors who need help can apply via our website (link is below). Be sure to check out the eligibility requirements and then click the link to the application form. Neighbors who want to help can make a donation via the same link. To date, we have raised an incredible $10,000! Through the generous support of the community and grants from the Whatcom Community Foundation and the Mary H Storer Foundation, we have reached our fundraising goal. We will use these funds to help Ferndale households with their June and August water bills.

Please help us spread the word so we can ease the struggle for some during this challenging time. And THANK YOU for your generous support and care for your fellow Ferndale residents.
