Blewett Pass van accident injures teens

The Seattle Post-Intelligencer reports that a van was involved in a single-car accident on Blewett Pass in the Cascade Range on U.S. 97 injuring five or six people. The van was taking Northwest Youth Corps member from Eugene, Oregon to the Twisp area of north-central Washington to do trail maintenance.

The van accident occurred around 2:30pm on Sunday when the van went off the road and rolled down an embankment.

There were 12 teenagers, whose ages spanned from 16 to 19, and an adult driver inside the van at the time of the accident. All were taken to Kittitas Valley Community Hospital in Ellensburg. The report said five or six people sustained minor injuries.

The cause of the accident is being investigated. The stretch of U.S. 97 between Interstate 90 and Highway 2 tends to be quite windy and often drivers take it too fast.
