Driver arrested for DUI following truck highway accident

Road closures followed the motor vehicle crash.

The Washington State Patrol confirmed the driver of a truck involved in a single-vehicle crash was arrested for driving under the influence on Thursday afternoon.

Johiadia Sealey, 26, was arrested following the crash, said Trooper Katherine Weatherwax in an email. Sealey was uninjured in the crash.

The crash occurred at 1:58 p.m. near Elma on Highway 12 after the vehicle, a 30-foot cargo truck, drifted off the roadway, skipped over the on-ramp and rolled after striking the guardrail, Weatherwax said.

There will be some road closures, including Third Street and the onramp, while the truck is recovered, Weatherwax said.
