Crash snarls fair traf­fic

The Daily Herald - - LOCAL NEWS -

MON­ROE — A car crash shut down both di­rec­tions of U.S. 2 near Roo­sevelt Road on Sun­day af­ter­noon.

A 19-year-old Mill Creek wo­man was taken to Prov­i­dence Hospi­tal with se­ri­ous head and in­ter­nal in­juries. They were not be­lieved to be life threat­en­ing, said Sgt. Mark Fran­cis with the Wash­ing­ton State Pa­trol.

The crash hap­pened just be­fore 3 p.m. A driver head­ing east­bound on U.S. 2 at­tempted to make a U-turn. An SUV that was west­bound on the high­way col­lided with the car. Two peo­ple in the SUV had mi­nor in­juries. The driver of the other car was not in­jured.

“It does not ap­pear there were any crim­i­nal charges,” Fran­cis said. “Just was at­tempt­ing a U-turn with that heavy fair traf­fic.”

The crash oc­curred a few miles from the Ev­er­green State Fair­grounds on the sec­ond to last day of the fair.
