Drinking and speeding blamed for car accident that injured two in Ocean Shores

A 1993 Lexus that was speeding in the 100 block of Point Brown Avenue SW in Ocean Shores, crossed the center line, smashed into a van parked in front of a residence, throwing the driver and passenger out of the car and severely injuring both. The impact was so intense that the car split in half and flipped over at least twice.

The 43-year-old driver was taken to Grays Harbor Community Hospital. The passenger was also taken to Grays Harbor Hospital and then transported to Harborview Medical Center in Seattle.

Komo News.com reports that Deputy Chief Russ Fitts of the Ocean Shores Police Department believes that alcohol and excessive speed were believed to be factors in the crash.
