Three Injured in Head-On Collision in Winlock


Three people were injured in a two-vehicle head-on collision in Winlock on Monday.

A Mazda driven by Rayne Alexander Moore, 27, of Winlock, on Tennessee Road reportedly crossed the center line near Nelson Road and struck a Ford Focus just after 6:30 p.m. on April 12.

Moore and his passenger, a 36-year-old Toledo woman, were transported by ambulance to Providence Centralia Hospital with minor injuries, according to the Lewis County Sheriff’s Office. The driver of the Ford, a 50-year-old Winlock woman, was transported via airlift due to wrist and back pain.

Moore was referred to the Lewis County Prosecutor’s Office for alleged second-degree driving with a suspended driver’s license and for vehicle theft, as he reportedly took the Mazda without the owner’s knowledge, according to the sheriff’s office.

The incident is currently under investigation.
