An injury crash in the 6200 block of Portal Way resulted in the closure of the road.
Aid units from Whatcom County Fire District 7 (WCFD7) and Ferndale Police were dispatched at 8:35pm Friday, April 12th, to the scene of a semi truck versus a pickup truck head-on crash.
As of 9:40pm, Portal Way remained closed between McKinley Street and Kaas Road.
According to law enforcement at the scene, a pickup truck with 3 male occupants was southbound on Portal Way when it veered over the fog line and struck head-on a semi truck parked alongside the road facing oncoming traffic. The semi truck was unoccupied at the time of the crash.
