On September 12th 2018 at about 4:49 A.M, Aberdeen Police Officers responded to the intersection at Heron and H Street for a dump truck versus passenger car accident.  When officers arrived, they found the driver of the passenger car entrapped in his vehicle.  The Aberdeen Fire Department extracted him from the vehicle through his windshield.   He was transported to the hospital with unknown injuries at this time. 

The dump truck was Eastbound on Heron Street when the passenger vehicle traveling Southbound on H Street failed to yield at the flashing red light and collided with the dump truck.  The dump truck driver was not injured. 

The Aberdeen Police Department would like to remind our residents that a flashing red light is the same as a stop sign and you must come to a complete stop. 

This morning Grays Harbor Scanner had posted a traffic alert for Aberdeen regarding an injury dump truck vs passenger car accident near Jack in the Box on E Heron Street - We are now hearing that the cause of the accident was due to the passenger car not yielding to the flashing red stop light.
