O I O O 2 Mukilteo Beacon www.mukilteobeacon.c0m Congressman gets peek Cement truck loses brakes, plunges into ravine A loaded cement truck plunged down a ravine at the bottom of Chennault Beach Road just before 9 am. Tuesday when its brakes gave out. According to police, without brakes to slow the truck as it headed west down the steep road, the driver was unable to nego- tiate the 90-degree turn north onto Ma- rineVrew Drive. Instead, the truck plowed through part of a resident's hedge, then crashed through trees and brush before turning on its side about 75 feet down the ravine. When first responders arrived, the driver was already outside the cab and seeming- ly OK. An officer said he was "conscious, walking and alert.” . Although he didn’t appear injured, he reluctantly agreed to be transported to the hospital to be checked out. A local towing company was soon on scene where officials were discussing how to pull the truck out of the ravine. First steps included removing the battery and draining the fuel be fore moving the truck, officials said.

The driver told police the brakes gave out as he headed down Chennault- Beach Road at Marine View Drive. That turn at the bottom of a steep grade has long vexed local residents, particularly because there is no guardrail or other safety device for events just like this one.

Rep. Rick Lars- en (D—an District), are rejoicing. Larsen got a first-hand look at Sno—lsle Libraries’ new contact-free service Friday, Iune 19, at the Mukilteo Library. The ser- vice, which started Monday, allows custom— ers, who previously had made requests, to come to any of Sno-lsle’s 23 branches and pick up their materials in recyclable papers bags via a contact-free handoff at the front door. The library notifies customers by phone or email that their material is ready for pick up. Sno-lsle also has begun to accept returns of library materials, but there are no in-li- brary services. Buildings remain closed to the public. Libraries may reopen during Phase 3 of the state's reopening plans. Sno— homish Country is in Phase 2. Larsen described the library as a great community institution that needs to be used. "It gives‘the opportunity for people in the community to get back somewhat to what might be a more regular routine,” he said. "That’s important. 1 know there’s a lot of cabin fever going on here in the North- west.
