EVERETT, WA – Two people were injured, one critically, following a wrong-way crash on I-5 near 52nd Street on Tuesday morning.
Local media report that the incident occurred at about 9 a.m., when a Toyota traveling south in the interstate’s northbound lanes collided with an unspecified passenger vehicle. The Toyota’s driver, a 57-year-old woman from Seattle, became trapped in her car. Emergency responders extricated her and then transported her to Providence Regional Medical Center with potentially life-threatening injuries.
The driver of the second vehicle, a 22-year-old Bothell man, was also hospitalized, though with less critical injuries.
Neither person’s current condition is known at this time.
According to the Washington State Patrol, the woman struck a sign before entering the interstate via the 41st Street on-ramp. They believe she suffered some sort of medical emergency, and that intoxication is not suspected at this time.
