60-Year-Old Woman Killed in Car Accident Northwest of Skagit Regional Airport
SKAGIT COUNTY, WA (January 16, 2018) – A fatal accident in rural Skagit County took place on John Wilson and Farm to Market Roads, around 6 PM on Monday night.
According to Washington State Patrol, a red 1997 Toyota 4Runner, driven by 60-year old Karen Wolf, was stopped at a stop sign westbound on Josh Wilson Road. Other vehicles were in the right hand turn lane from the Farm to Market Road, obstructing her view of the road.
When she thought it was safe, the Mount Vernon woman accelerated into the intersection, where she was hit by a 2001 Maroon Dodge Ram pickup truck that was traveling northbound on Farm to Market Rd. The driver was 28-year old Sedro Woolley man, Levi Nicholl.
Both cars had major damage, and came to a rest in a ditch at the northwest corner of the intersection. Wolf died from injuries sustained in the crash. Nicholl was reported to be injured, but there are no updates on his condition.
