According to the report, the women were turning into the K-Mart parking lot when a Pontiac GTO crashed into their Ford Taurus, tearing it in half. The rear of the Taurus burst into flames after impact.
Everett Police Lieutenant Rod Sniffen reported that the two women had to be extricated from the Taurus using the Jaws of Life.
Police are investigating the cause of the car accident and whether alcohol or drugs was involved. It is probably safe to assume that the GTO was speeding because the results of the crash was so violent. The driver of the GTO and passenger did not appear to be injured.
