Law enforcement and aid crews responded to a report of a crash about 5:30pm today north of Fox Road on Vista Drive in north Ferndale. 1 vehicle was reported to be off the road and several feet down the embankment.
Law enforcement at the scene closed Vista Drive temporarily between Fox Road and Olson Road.
Washington State Patrol (WSP) Trooper Heather Axtman said the crash involved a vehicle and a motorcycle. The driver of the motorcycle suffered multiple leg fractures. The vehicle was the one off the road and down a embankment, Axtman said. Any possible charges resulting from the crash are pending the outcome of the WSP investigation.
Whatcom County Fire District 7 Division Chief Ben Boyko said getting to the driver of the vehicle down the embankment required setting ladders down to the vehicle and using chainsaws to clear the brush. That patient was transported to PeaceHealth St Joseph Medical Center as a precaution with non-life-threatening injuries. Boyko said the motorcyclist was transported to PeaceHealth in serious condition.
