CLARK, Bud, 40, Concrete Police Chief, the Republican candidate for Skagit County sheriff, was killed Saturday (Oct. 17, 1982) in a traffic accident, the State Patrol reported. Clark, 40, was killed instantly when the eastbound 1979 Ford Fiesta he was riding in collided with a parked, unoccupied 1963 Cadillac three miles west of Concrete on Highway 20. The accident occurred at 2:15 a.m. His wife, Donna, 38, who police say was driving, was listed in stable and fair condition Saturday at United General Hospital in Sedro Woolley. She suffered fractured ribs and a fractured right leg but was "doing fine" following surgery, said Donna Maynard, hospital day supervisor. Clark had been thrown through the windshield of the vehicle, said Concrete patrolman Wayne White, who with two reserve Concrete police officers, was first to arrive on the scene. The accident was the second early-morning accident involving a parked vehicle on a Skagit County road in the past two weeks. Three Burlington women were killed Oct. 8 when their 1978 Datsun ran into a parked truck on Interstate 5 eight miles north of Burlington. Clark was in his fourth year as Concrete's police chief. He was an officer with the Anacortes Police Department for 10 years and had worked six months for the Burlington Police Department before taking the job in Concrete. Clark's death, occurring less than three weeks before election day, may mean Skagit County sheriff John Boynton - a Democrat - will face no Republican challenger Nov. 2. "We're in shock now, obviously," said Kay Hancock, Skagit County Republican Committee chairman. "I would think at this late date we wouldn't think of replacing him (Clark) - its horribly late. We have an executive board meeting on Monday and I imagine we'll decide what we're going to do then." "I'm stunned, absolutely stunned," said Boynton, who was notified by the Skagit County coroner shortly after the accident occurred. "Bud was an opponent, not an enemy. We had been good friends for 15 years; he was like a member of our family."
