DUPONT – A 23-year-old Yelm man was injured Saturday by a chunk of steel debris, while he was driving south on Interstate 5 near DuPont.
Washington State Patrol Trooper Guy Gill said that the debris was sent airborne after being struck by another vehicle on the north or southbound lanes of I-5. The debris shattered the car’s windshield, striking the man in the head, Gill said.
Amazingly the driver was not seriously hurt. Gill said that the accident happened around 3 p.m. Medics transported the man to Tacoma General Hospital; his current condition is unknown.
