Man injured in hunting accident

(Sequim) -- A hunting accident injured a man near Sequim Sunday.

Clallam County sheriff's deputies were called to an area near Louella Road about 5:30 yesterday evening after a report of a man suffering a gunshot wound to the leg. Deputies contacted two Port Angeles men who had been hunting in the Palo Alto Road area.

Apparently, one of the mens' rifle discharged while they were unloading the weapons.

The bullet traveled through the passenger seat, center console, and driver's seat of one of the mens' pickup and fragmented.

The fragments went into the leg of 46-year-old Thomas Hull.

The two drove out of the woods until they had cell service and called 9-1-1.

Hull was transported to Olympic Medical Center where he was treated for the injury.

Deputies say there's no evidence of foul play and the shooting has been determined to be an accident.
