Three People Hospitalized in Head-On Crash on State Route 522
Snohomish County, WA (August 16, 2020) – On Saturday, three people were severely injured in a head-on crash on State Route 522.
Washington State Patrol said the accident happened just before 4 p.m., west of the Snohomish River Bridge.
Trooper Heather Axtman said several witnesses called 911 and reported a Kia passenger car was driven erratically. It was possible that the car driver was DUI.
Axtman added that Troopers were trying to catch up with the said vehicle. Then at around 3:45 p.m. it crossed the center line and crashed head-on with another vehicle.
As a result of the accident, the driver of the other vehicle suffered a broken leg. Immediately, rescuers transported the driver to EvergreenHealth Monroe.
Meanwhile, both the Kia driver and his passenger were taken to Harborview Medical Center with serious injuries.
Authorities closed both directions of Highway 522 near the bridge Saturday afternoon while troopers investigated.
