Man Killed In Collision On Hwy. 522

Man Killed In Collision On Hwy. 522

MONROE - A 25-year-old Bellevue man was killed last night when his pickup collided head-on with a carnival food trailer that had become unhitched from the back of a large truck on the Snohomish River Bridge on Highway 522.

The accident occurred shortly before 11:15 p.m. when the trailer broke loose from the eastbound truck driven by Ronald Quint, 34, of Los Banos, Calif. The trailer crossed the center line and hit the truck driven by John Westra, troopers said.

A third vehicle, driven by Neil Richwine, 55, of Richland, then hit the rear of Westra's pickup.

Neither Richwine nor Quint was injured, the State Patrol said.

Quint was headed to the Evergreen State Fair in Monroe - which opens tomorrow.
