At approximately 10:15 Monday morning, the Bonney Lake Police Department responded to a report that a jersey barrier had fallen from state Route 410 onto Angeline Road.

According to Public Information Officer Todd Green, the jersey barrier, which was as wide as Angeline Road, crushed a truck driving north underneath the overpass.

The construction on SR 410 is a project aimed at widening the sidewalks.

Bonney Lake police closed Angeline Road from both sides of the overpass for several hours to make the area safe for workers underneath before they could lift the barrier off the vehicle.

Green confirmed there was one occupant in the vehicle, sex unknown, killed on the scene. At time of press, it was unknown if there were any other passengers in the vehicle.

The SR 410 overpass over Angeline Road itself is safe for drivers to drive over, according to Green.

“Both the Department of Transportation and the city of Bonney Lake came out and determined the bridge itself is structurally sound,” Green said.
