Three people were injured Saturday night in a collision on the stretch of state Route 161 known as the Eatonville Cutoff Road.

The driver of the Tercel, a 76-year-old Eatonville man, and the two occupants of the Mustang – an 18-year-old man from Orting and an 18-year-old woman from Spanaway – were injured and taken to Good Samaritan Hospital.
All were wearing seat belts.
