When they arrived they discovered that a Dodge truck, driven by a 38 year old Seattle man, veered into the south parking strip, colliding with three parked vehicles. 

According to Deputy Chief Joe Strong, a 48 year old Montesano man had gotten out of one of those vehicles just before the collision and was also struck by the Dodge, causing non life-threatening injuries.
