Lynnwood, WA (April 29, 2021) - A vehicle collision in the Lynnwood area left one person injured on Tuesday, April 27.
The crash occurred early that morning at around 10:30 a.m. near the intersection of Interstate 5 and 196th Street SW. Emergency responders were shortly called to the scene to provide aid to the injured parties. According to local reports, the driver of a Saturn sedan merged onto the interstate from 196th Street at the time of the impact.
The Saturn collided with a Scion while changing lanes on the roadway. This caused the Saturn to overturn multiple times, and the driver was hospitalized for the treatment of sustained injuries. Both vehicles had to be towed from the scene.
No other injuries were reported. An ongoing investigation into the accident is underway.
Our thoughts are with the injured victim and their family at this time. We hope for a full recovery.
