Pauline Maxey of Wenatchee Suffers Injuries in Crash on Knapp’s Hill Tunnel [Chelan, WA]

Pauline Maxey and Paul Maxey Injured in Chelan Crash

Chelan, WA (September 17, 2021)– On Thursday,  85-year-old Pauline Maxey and  84-year-old Paul Maxey, both from Wenatchee, suffered injuries in a crash on  Knapp’s Hill Tunnel.

The accident took place at about 12:40 pm. in the middle of the tunnel.

Officers said Paul Maxey was southbound in a 2000 Toyota Corolla when it crossed the center line and hit a northbound box truck, which also struck a southbound Chevy Traverse that blocked both lanes of US 97A.

“They had to wait for a (Department of Transportation) engineer because apparently, the box truck hit a girder, which is something that is really important in the tunnel.” an officer explained, “They just wanted to make sure it was still safe for folks to travel in the tunnel.”

Rescuers took  Paul Maxey and his wife Pauline Maxey to Lake Chelan Community Hospital with unknown injuries. 

No one else was hurt in the accident.

As always, paying attention to your surroundings whenever driving is indeed important. This, and abiding by all the driving laws as well as following all the road signs are simple ways to practice defensive driving. Defensive driving can lessen the chance of serious road accidents happening.

The perverse actions of a reckless driver can increase the likelihood of traffic collisions. If you are a driver, pay close attention to those around you. Always keep a considerable distance from others just in case harm is near.
