Port Angeles couple injured in motorhome wreck
QUILCENE **** A Port Angeles woman who was extricated with the Jaws of Life hydraulic rescue tool from a motor-home wreck south of Quilcene was listed in satisfactory condition at a Seattle hospital Monday.

Carol Linklater Dunlap, 68, a passenger in a Winnebago that struck a rock wall on the side of U.S. Highway 101, was airlifted to Harborview Medical Center in Seattle after the wreck at about
9 p.m. Sunday.

Her husband, Bob David Dunlap, 74, was taken to Harrison Medical Center in Bremerton for treatment of minor injuries.

He was driving the Winnebago north on the highway about 6 miles south of Quilcene and was rounding a curve when the motor home struck a rock wall on the road's shoulder and spun around, the State Patrol said.

The motor home blocked the southbound lane until 11:51 p.m., the state Department of Transportation said.

The driver will be cited for traveling too fast for conditions, the State
Patrol said.

The motor home was destroyed, officers said.

It was towing a sport utility vehicle at the time of the crash.

Crews extricated Carol Dunlap from the wreckage using the Jaws of Life, said Adina Vierra, spokeswoman for the Quilcene Volunteer Fire Department (Jefferson County Fire District 2).

Bob Dunlap is chairman of the Clallam County Homelessness Task Force.

His wife has been active with Holy Trinity Lutheran Church and community groups.

She also is a singer in the NorthWest Women's Chorale.

Crews from Brinnon, Port Ludlow and East Jefferson Fire-Rescue assisted after the wreck.

That is one total ugly mess of a motorhome. Looks kind of like the Winnebago Chieftain back in the mid-nineties. Heck, I had a wiring fire in that thing, which I ended up repairing and trading off.
