Three soldiers suffered minor injuries Sunday when a National Guard truck struck the barrier of eastbound State Route 520, according to the Seattle Times.

Washington State Patrol spokeswoman Trooper Julie Judson told the Seattle Times that the driver of the 5-ton truck lost control on eastbound State Route 520 near Northeast 40th Street in Redmond.

According to the Washington State Department of Transportation, the collision blocked the HOV lane near the Northeast 40 Street, which is near milepost 10, from just after 12:30 p.m. to 2:25 p.m.

Yes, I saw this yesterday, shortly after the aid cars arrived. The truck was almost sideways across the HOV lane. Looked like the driver hit a patch of wet road.

Seems like an unusual situation, typically military vehicles drive slowly and in the right lane, at least when I've seen them on I-90 and I-5.
