Beaverton man injured in Highway 17 crash

May 20, 2014 

A 56-year-old Beaverton man was injured about 4 p.m. Monday in a crash on Highway 17 about a mile south of Warden, the Washington State Patrol reported.

Craig R. Sandberg was driving north on the highway and failed to negotiate a curve with his 2013 Western semi tractor. The semi veered off the left side of the road, rolled and came to rest on its right side, the WSP said.

Sandberg was taken to Samaritan Hospital in Moses Lake with unknown injuries.

The cause of the crash was inattention and the driver may face second-degree negligent driving, the state patrol said.
