PA Man Allegedly Steals Two Cars within an Hour

A Port Angeles man allegedly stole a car Wednesday evening, wrecked it on 101 – and then stole the car of a Forks woman who stopped to help him.

30 year old Skyler Vestal of PA will be charged with taking a motor vehicle without permission, driving while intoxicated and driving while suspended following a wreck on U.S. Highway 101 north of Forks.

The State Patrol says 30 year-old Skyler Vestal of PA  was headed southbound on Highway 101 Wednesday evening in a 2001 Chrysler Sebring when it left the roadway at milepost 202.


The vehicle was reported stolen about a half-hour earlier.

A second vehicle, identified as a 2001 Ford Ranger driven by a Forks woman, stopped to provide assistance.

The State Patrol alleged that Vestal then took the Ford and left the scene, heading south.

The Ford was stopped and Vestal was taken into custody without incident at milepost 193.

No injuries were reported.
