According to the State Patrol, a 2007 Honda minivan driven by Janis Erdman left the roadway and hit a 1998 Chevy truck that was parked by the side of the road. The driver of the truck, Jason Stringfield of Sedro-Woolley, was standing next to his vehicle when it was hit. The truck then struck Stringfield, 27.
