Two sisters and an infant was injured in a rear-end car accident on Highway 20 on Wednesday, according to news reports.
The accident occurred around 4 p.m. Monday when two women, ages 21 and 22 years old, were traveling southbound in a 1998 Dodge Neon. A five-to six-month-old infant was also in the car when one of the women driving reportedly rear-ended a 2010 Volkswagen Jetta just north of Coupeville near the intersection with Sherman Road, according to news reports. The driver of the Jetta was reportedly stopped and waiting to turn.
Washington State Patrol troopers said the women and baby were transported to Whidbey General Hospital with minor injuries. None were seriously injured in the collision, according to news reports.
The driver of the Jetta was not injured in the collision, according to news reports.
It is unclear why the woman driving wasn’t able to stop in time to avoid the collision. It is unclear how fast she was traveling when the collision occurred. Troopers said alcohol did not play a role in the crash.
As an Everett car accident attorney, I’m glad to hear that there weren’t more serious injuries reported in the collision. I hope all the victims are able to experience a full and speedy recovery. I urge drivers to always pay attention while driving to avoid a collision like this.
