Yet another reason to get rid of studded tires; State Patrol Troopers say a three car crash this morning was caused by studs. An Elk man was attempting to turn left off Highway 2 near Newport when he alledgely slid on the studs and crashed into the back of another car. He then went into oncoming traffic, hitting a car going the other direction.
The man was cited for negligent driving and driving with studded tires. Washington requires drivers to remove studded tires by April 1.
