NASELLE -- A Washington State Patrol trooper had stopped at a mudslide on Highway 101 near Naselle when the mudslide carried a tree into the trooper's car. Then patrol car was hit by another car and both cars and the tree burned.
Trooper Russ Winger says it was the worst of several weather-related incidents on the Washington coast in Monday's wind and rain storm.
Winger said the trooper is not injured and the driver of the other car is OK, with a sore neck.
The Washington Transportation Department said Highway 101 was closed in five places between the Columbia River and Raymond by downed trees or accidents.
A semi-truck tipped on the Astoria-Megler bridge across the Columbia. Another semi blew over on its side on the Chehalis River bridge in Aberdeen.
