An overturned pickup and box trailer closed the Highway 97 Beebe Bridge last night, Nov. 5, 2017. Washington State Patrol (WSP) Troopers say it happened around 5:01 p.m. when the driver, identified as 43-year-old Juan Guzman-Cortez of Brewster, lost control of the pickup causing it to crash into the guardrail and then overturning blocking both lanes.
The bridge was closed for about two hours, but did reopen Sunday night.
There were ten people, all from Brewster, inside the truck and trailer. No one was injured. Troopers reported fault of the driver for driving too fast for the icy conditions.
