95-Year-Old Woman Dies after Accident on Highway 20 at Campbell Lake Road

 
SKAGIT, WA (June 4, 2018) – On Monday afternoon around 3:00 PM, an elderly woman was fatally injured in a two-vehicle collision on Highway 20. The deceased victim was later identified as 95-year-old Kathryn Jensen of Eastsound.
 
Chief Criminal Deputy Thomas Molitor of North Whidbey, with the Skagit County Sheriff’s Office, was driving a 2015 Ford Explorer southbound on State Highway 20. A 2002 Geo Prizm, driven by Jensen, went directly in his path at the intersection of Highway 20 and Campbell Lake Road.
 
Molitor’s SUV struck the Geo Prizm and both vehicles came to a stop in the northbound lanes.
 
Jensen sustained serious injuries and was transported to the Island Hospital, where she was later pronounced dead. Molitor was not injured in the collision. It was found that both drivers were wearing their seatbelts at the time of the crash.
 
Molitor’s SUV was an official Skagit County Sheriff’s Office vehicle. He was not running lights and sirens at the time, but was just driving normally and within the speed limit of 50 mph. However, it was revealed that the cause of the accident was Jensen’s failure to yield the right of way. The state patrol is still investigating the incident because a law enforcement officer is involved.
