Five people were injured and transported to Mason General Hospital following a three-vehicle crash on U.S. Highway 101 in the Skokomish Valley on Saturday night, the Washington State Patrol reported.
According to a press memo:
The crash occurred about 9 p.m. when a 2008 Jeep Liberty eastbound on Skokomish Valley Road failed to stop at the U.S. 101 intersection near Milepost 339.
The Jeep struck a 2015 Mazda3, which was heading south on U.S. 101. The Mazda spun several times and came to rest in the northbound lane of the highway. Then, a Subaru Impreza station wagon, which was northbound on U.S. Highway 101, was struck by the Jeep.
The Jeep’s driver, a 20-year-old woman from Lee’s Summit, Missouri, was cited for failing to stop at a stop sign. Drugs and alcohol were not a contributing factor, investigators say.
