Injured King Co. firefighter remains hospitalized

Wynn Loiland, the King County firefighter who was injured last month when he was struck by a car while on duty, is showing some signs of improvement.

Loiland, 52, remains in intensive care at Harborview Medical Center in Seattle. He has yet to regain full consciousness, but is slowly showing signs of responsiveness, according to a news release from South King Fire & Rescue.

Loiland was at the scene of a rollover accident on Interstate 5 in Federal Way on Nov. 20 when he was struck by a car. The State Patrol said slick roads and fog were factors in the accident.

Loiland was hospitalized with severe head and facial injuries, a collapsed lung and broken arm, said Deputy Chief Gordie Olson of South King County Fire & Rescue. Loiland has been with South King Fire & Rescue for 31 years.
