Highway 9 in Maltby was blocked for about an hour Thursday afternoon by a three-vehicle pileup. Washington State Patrol trooper Keith Leary said that one person was hurt and taken to the hospital with non-life threatening injuries.
According to Leary, a semi-truck that was heading north hit a passenger car that was pulling out of a residential area near 203rd Street SE, at about 2pm. A 68 year old man from Kirkland was driving a pickup truck southbound. The driver braked to avoid the collision, but the semi crossed the center line and the two trucks collided head-on.
The man had to be helped out of his truck by Snohomish County Fire District 7 rescue crews before being rushed to the hospital.
Leary also said that about 20 gallons of diesel fuel spilled and was contained on the side of the road. The cleanup was expected to be monitored by State Department of Ecology crews.
