A 5-year-old boy sustained minor injuries after being involved in two car wrecks in the same vehicle early Monday morning in Grays Harbor County.
Deputies were dispatched about midnight to a two-car collision in the 1900 block of the South Bank Road, south of Elma, according to Grays Harbor County Undersheriff Dave Pimentel.
According to police, a 26-year-old Oakville woman had crashed her VW Jetta, driving off the road and through a fence onto private property then coming back through the fence and ending up back on the road. She called a relative who came to help but didn’t see the vehicle on the road and rear-ended the Jetta at low speed with his pickup truck.
The woman’s 5-year-old son, who was in the VW, suffered a “very minor” cut to his lip and was treated at the scene, Pimentel said. Pimentel said he did not know if the child was in a safety seat.
