Timothy Christian, a 44-year-old Roy resident, became fatally injured following a car accident at about 6:45 a.m. Tuesday, Sept. 10.

“The incident occurred at the 15200 clock of Canyon Road,” writes Ed Troyer, Pierce County Sheriff’s spokesperson, in an email to the Dispatch.

The accident included a blue Dodge pickup heading southbound on Canyon Road, traveling in the inside lane. The accident also included a Black van traveling northbound in the inside lane. The pickup jumped the median and struck the van head on. This made the van strike two other northbound vehicles.

Speed was not a factor. Impairment levels will be determined by Troyer and the state toxicity lab.  No criminal charges were filed.
