Wayward Ranger hits pole

North Whidbey Fire and Rescue responded to a one-car, non-injury accident Wednesday, May 26 on Zylstra Road, about one mile south of W. Fort Nugent Road, after driver Adam Hill crashed his red Ford Ranger into a power pole at about 9:30 a.m. “I turned one way and the truck went the other,” he said. The accident occurred at a sharp curve in the road. Chief Marv Koorn said it was likely a case of slick conditions and, possibly, a little too much speed. Whidbey Island experienced heavy rainfall throughout the day. Heavy rain hit again Friday morning. - Jenny Manning/Whidbey News-Times
