U.S. Highway 2 single-car accident injures 3

Three people were injured, two critically, in a U.S. 2 single car accident near Skykomish on Saturday afternoon around 3:30pm.

The HeraldNet.com reports that the driver of a 2005 Toyota Scion, a Edmonds woman, 23, crossed the centerline, went off the road and hit a telephone pole.

The driver was airlifted to Harborview Medical Center in Seattle. Her passenger, a Lynnwood woman, 24, was also airlifted to Harborview. Another passenger, a Bothell man, 23, was taken to a hospital in Everett.

Harborview Medical Center is a Trauma I center treating victims with serious personal injuries throughout the Northwest including patients from Oregon, Idaho, Washington and Alaska. A Trauma I designation is given to those hospitals with 24-hour trauma care and a cadre of surgeons including neurosurgeons, plastic surgeons, maxillofacial surgeons, orthopedic surgeons and burn care.

The Washington State Patrol is investigating the car accident to determine whether excessive speed, driver distraction or alcohol or drugs were factors in the accident.
