Olympia woman, 77, breaks arm in Black Lake Boulevard accident

A car accident on Black Lake Boulevard at Ken Lake Drive on Friday was thought to have been triggered after the driver of a car turned into an oncoming truck, a lieutenant with the Olympia Fire Department said Sunday.

About 11 a.m. Friday, Olympia Fire was dispatched to Black Lake Boulevard and the scene of a three-vehicle accident at Ken Lake Drive, said Lt. Jim Crisp.

A 77-year-old Olympia woman was northbound on Black Lake Boulevard in a silver sedan when she allegedly turned left at Ken Lake Drive and crashed into a southbound truck, he said.

The woman suffered a broken arm and was taken to Providence St. Peter Hospital, while the truck driver, a man, suffered a minor injury and was taken to Capital Medical Center, Crisp said.

A third vehicle was involved in the accident, but Crisp wasn’t sure what role that car played. The rear of the car was damaged, but the driver said he was not injured, Crisp said.

The accident closed all four lanes of Black Lake Boulevard for about an hour, he said.
