Bellingham man injured in crash

A Bellingham man was hurt in a two car accident early today.

The State Patrol says 47 year old David Hintz was in his car on the shoulder of northbound I-5 near the Samish Way exit just after midnight when a pick-up truck driven by a Lakewood man slammed into it.

He was injured and transported to the hospital in Bellingham.

The driver of the pick-up, 56 year old Thomas Denman, wasn’t hurt.

Troopers say drugs or alcohol were not involved, but Denman faces a charge of improper lane travel.
