A State Patrol bulletin said Myles D. Welch, 36, was driving a 1999 Honda Accord westbound on the highway at about 9:05 p.m. when he bypassed three attenuator trucks with right arrow signs indicating a left lane closure. He then crashed into the sweeper truck.

Welch was transported to PeaceHealth Southwest Medical Center, according to the State Patrol bulletin.

The driver of the sweeper, Sherman C. Carrillo, 28, of Longview, was not injured.

The State Patrol bulletin said Welch will face a DUI charge in connection with the crash.
