A 49-year-old Island woman was injured in a two-vehicle crash Tuesday afternoon on Island Crest Way. The woman, whose name is withheld due to privacy issues, was transported to Virginia Mason Hospital with neck, shoulder and head injuries. Her condition has not been released.
The crash occurred at about 3:55 p.m., Oct. 4 in the 4400 block of Island Crest Way. A 44-year-old Island woman was driving a 2002 black Mercedes across Island Crest Way from S.E. 44th Street, toward Merrimount Drive when her vehicle crashed into a light green Honda Element sport utility vehicle driven by the injured woman. The SUV, which had been traveling southbound on Island Crest Way at about 35 miles per hour, went out of control and rolled over before it landed on the passenger side of the vehicle, facing north in the southbound lanes of Island Crest Way.
The driver of the Mercedes told police she didn't see the SUV prior to impact.
She and her daughter, a 5-year-old passenger in the rear of the car, were not injured. Both vehicles were towed from the scene. Fire department personnel transported the non-injured parties to their home.
There were no injuries in a two-vehicle crash Oct. 3 at the intersection of S.E. 39th Street and Island Crest Way. A 27-year-old Seattle woman was driving a 1999 Toyota Camry southbound on Island Crest Way at about 7:50 a.m. when she crashed into the rear end of a 1993 Mercedes Benz.
The driver of the Mercedes, a 50-year-old Island woman, was stopped waiting to turn left onto S.E. 39th Street. The driver of the Toyota told police she was looking to the left, trying to see a street sign, when she crashed into the Mercedes, which she hadn't seen prior to impact. The Seattle woman was cited for inattention.
