A one-car accident occurred in the 8500 block of West Mercer Way at 3:30 p.m. on June 16 when a black sedan crashed into a telephone pole and came to a stop over an embankment. Both passengers were transported to a hospital, one with serious injuries, and the other with minor injuries, according to Mercer Island Police Detective Pete Erickson, who said that "excessive speed" contributed to the driver's loss of control.Contact Mercer Island Reporter Staff Reporter Staff at firstname.lastname@example.org.
