A Lacey man was killed early Sunday after a single-vehicle wreck on U.S. 101 in Mason County, according to the Washington State Patrol.
The 77-year-old man died at the scene. The state patrol identified the victim as Eui W. Park.
A little after 2 a.m. Sunday, troopers say the man, who was driving a Hyundai Elantra, was headed south on U.S. 101 at Purdy Cutoff Road when he drove off the highway. Troopers say the man’s car hit and sheared off a light pole, rolled, then landed upside down in a hatchery pond.
Troopers say drugs or alcohol were a factor in the crash.
