Washington State Patrol says three crashes happened in the same area along Highway 14 Wednesday night.

Washington State Trooper Will Finn said the first crash happened on eastbound SR-14 near Southeast 192nd Avenue just before 9:20 p.m. Troopers said that driver was arrested for DUI. 

The Camas-Washougal Fire Department responded to the crash and as a standard safety procedure blocked the left lane with a fire engine.  

While crews were on scene, a vehicle in the westbound lanes struck the fire truck. Serious injuries were reported and crews transported the driver to a nearby hospital. The vehicle was completely destroyed. 

No firefighters were injured. 

The another crash happened in the westbound lanes when a vehicle lost control and crashed into a barrier. No injuries were reported in that crash. 

State Route 14 was closed in both directions.
