A 68-year-old Elma woman triggered a four-car crash and blocked traffic for about an hour when her car crashed into a jersey barrier on the Devonshire overpass, according to the Washington State Patrol.
The woman and a 73-year-old man driving another vehicle were injured and taken to Grays Harbor Community Hospital in Aberdeen. The other drivers and passengers were not injured.
About 3 p.m. Monday, the 68-year-old woman was driving a 2000 Kia Sportage on US 12 near Montesano, when she apparently lost control of her vehicle and crashed into the jersey barrier.
Another driver came along, saw the crash and stopped in the other lane. He then moved his car behind the woman’s car. Two more vehicles came along but couldn’t stop in time and crashed into the first and second vehicles.
