Washington Street accident

Blair police and Washington County sheriff personnel respond to an accident on Washington Street near 15th Street on Monday afternoon.

A Blair man was uninjured after his car collided with a semi-tractor trailer Monday afternoon along Washington Street.

Blair police, Blair Fire and Rescue and a Washington County sheriff's deputy responded to the crash just after 4 p.m.

According to a Blair police report, a tan 2003 Lincoln Town Car, driven by Randall L. Plugge, 64, of Blair, was northbound on 15th Street when it ran into the side of a 2016 Peterbilt semi-tractor trailer, driven by Erich G. Rumpel, 33, of Spencer, that was headed west on Washington Street.

Plugge was stopped at the intersection before proceeding and striking the semi. The car, which was totaled, came to rest in the westbound lanes. Damage to the semi was estimated at $1,000.

Detective Eric Stier said Plugge, who was cited for failure to yield, was not transported.
