Aid and law enforcement personnel were dispatched about 7:45pm tonight to a location in the area of Bay and Blaine Roads due to a report of a rollover crash. A Whatcom County Sheriff’s Office deputy that was first to the area reported by radio of finding evidence of a crash but no vehicle or persons.

About the same time, an off-duty Washington State Patrol (WSP) trooper at the AM/PM Arco Minimart on Grandview Road called his dispatchers to report a Subaru station wagon parked at the store with extensive body damage according to WSP Trooper Heather Axtman. This information was passed on to What-Comm 911 dispatchers.

It was eventually determined the Subaru was the same vehicle reported to have rolled off the road 5 miles away on Bay Road and the driver was the only occupant and did not require medical attention.

As a result of their investigation, the driver was expected to be arrested for driving under the influence, Axtman told MFN.

Slow Down, Move Over!

What does this mean exactly? The article below outlines the law and what you can do to help keep us and other emergency workers safe when we are working on the side of the roadA recent change in the state’s Move Over, Slow Down law now gives more direction to drivers passing first responders – including highway maintenance, utility, solid waste and tow trucks with flashing lights – on the side of roadways. These crews work inches from moving traffic to help make the roadways safer, and we need everyone’s help ensuring they and everyone else on the road return home safety at the end of each shift.
If you see vehicles on the shoulder with flashing lights:
• Move Over one lane if safe to do so
• If unable to move over, Slow Down to 10 mph under the posted speed limit (the 10 mph reduction went into effect at the end of July)
It’s not only the safe thing to do – it’s the law.
