An Edmonds woman who ran a red light on 220th Street Southwest and Highway 99 was taken to Seattle’s Harborview Medical Center Tuesday morning after causing a three-car collision around 6:30 a.m. Friday morning.
According to Edmonds police spokesman Sgt. Mark Marsh, the driver was eastbound on 220th Street Southwest and after entering the intersection was struck by two vehicles southbound on Highway 99.
The 48-year-old driver was transported to Harborview with a pelvic fracture, although her injuries were not life-threatening, Marsh said. The woman was headed to work, but didn’t recall anything about the accident when the officer talked to her at the hospital, he added.
The driver of one of the other vehicles – a 48-year-old Lynnwood resident – was taken to Swedish Edmonds with minor injuries. The third driver, a 56-year-old Edmonds woman, had no reported injuries, Marsh said.
Drugs and alcohol were not a factor in the collision, and the driver was cited for running a red light. Highway 99 was closed both directions for about an hour while the collision was cleared. All three vehicles had to be towed from the scene, although traffic was relatively light, likely due to the long holiday weekend, Marsh said.
