The Washington State Patrol’s Major Accident Investigation Team is investigating a Nov. 29 collision that involved on-duty patrol officer Travis D. Beebe.
The three-vehicle wreck occurred at 4:36 p.m. on Friday, Nov. 29, on U.S. Highway 101 east of Port Angeles.

The driver and two passengers in the second vehicle struck, a 2011 Toyota Tundra, were not injured. The vehicle was damaged but not totaled.
