Two Sedro-Wooley residents were injured in a head-on car accident on Thursday afternoon around 4:22pm.
According to a report in the Sky Valley Chronicle, Betty L. Blouin, 55, failed to yield the right-of-way when making a left hand turn onto Mosier Road from Highway 9 and collided with a Mitsubishi driven by Assunta Draper Napoleone, 51.
Both drivers were injured in the motor vehicle accident and taken to Skagit Valley Hospital. Both of the vehicles were considered totaled.
The Washington State Patrol is investigating the accident and they suspect that alcohol may have been a factor.
Washington state vehicle code RCW 46.61.185 states that a driver who turns to the left within an intersection must yield the right-of-way to any vehicle approaching from the opposite direction which is within the intersection or so close thereto as to constitute an immediate hazard.
