Washington State Patrol troopers on Thursday released the names of the drivers involved in a Wednesday morning crash on westbound Highway 14 near Evergreen Boulevard.

The 11:15 a.m. accident, which involved a pickup pulling a boat on a trailer, snarled traffic for an hour.

According to troopers, the accident occurred when the pickup driver, Matthew McIvor, 42, of Camas, attempted a lane change. He forced a Ford Expedition driven by Nannette Robinson, 46, of Camas into the median barrier. The Ford, which had been slightly behind McIvor’s Dodge pickup, bounced off the barrier. Next, it struck the boat trailer, then ended up landing in a ditch on the passenger side. McIvor was ticketed for making an unsafe lane change. The boat trailer and the Ford were considered totaled.

Robinson was treated and released at PeaceHealth Southwest Medical Center.
