News agencies reported that two people sustained moderate injuries in a collision Wednesday afternoon on State Route 104.
According to the Washington State Patrol report, the accident happened at 2:21pm on State Route 104, just west of the Hood Canal Bridge. A 61-year-old Sequim woman was traveling westbound on SR-104 in her 2006 Ford sedan when her vehicle struck the rear of a 1996 Volvo station wagon driven by a 48-year-old Port Townsend woman, totaling both vehicles. The Volvo was stopped for traffic at the intersection of SR-104 and Shine Road at the time of the accident. No other vehicles were involved in the crash.
The Port Townsend woman was taken by ambulance to Harrison Medical Center in Bremerton for treatment of injuries sustained during the accident. The Sequim woman was transported via helicopter to Harborview Medical Center in Seattle for treatment of serious injuries. Updates on the victim’s conditions were not available at the time of this release. Both victims were wearing seatbelts at the time of the accident.
The Sequim woman has since been cited for speeding.
As a Bellingham car accident lawyer, I’m relieved to learn that no one was more seriously injured in this potentially deadly accident. I wish both women a quick recovery from their injuries.
