    PORT ORCHARD, Wash. - A driver was injured Saturday morning after a chunk of granite struck his windshield on State Route 16 near Port Orchard.

    The incident happened at about 9 a.m. at Tremont Avenue at milepost 26.

    According to troopers, a pickup truck was towing a trailer loaded with granite. When the trailer started to fishtail, it caused the truck and trailer to jackknife.

    The trailer struck a barrier, which ejected a load of granite over the barrier into the oncoming lanes and struck the windshield of a 2013 Nissan Altima.

    The driver of the Nissan was injured and taken to Harrison Medical Center to be treated for his non-life-threatening injuries.
