According to a press memo from the Washington State Patrol, 40-year old Dean Zimmerman of Los Angeles, CA was Northbound I-5 near milepost 204 in a Black 2010 Audi 4-door. The press memo states he was in lane one of three when his vehicle struck the rear of a white 2005 Kenworth construction tractor and cattle trailer being driven by 32-year old Dustin Yost of Everson.   Troopers say the Audi veered to the left, crossing into lane two of I-5 when the Audi was struck on the driver’s side by a Gray 2005 Wilson Tractor and flatbed trailer being driven by 38-year old Jagpa Sidhu of Marysville.  The tractor then jack-knifed and blocked the freeway.
