According to a report in the Yakima Herald.com, Beery was a passenger in a Suzuki Samurai driven by Patrick Hignard, age 44 of Puyallup. The small SUV failed to negotiate a curve and went off of State Route 410, a Forest Service road, eight miles west of the Woodshed Restaurant.
Hignard and another passenger, Shannon Sims, age 20 of Lynnwood, made it out of the vehicle and hiked out and made the report of the car accident on Saturday morning. Sims was uninjured but Hignard was treated for injuries. It is ironic that Sims was the only person in the vehicle not to have been wearing a seat belt.
