KITTITAS COUNTY, WA — A 47-year-old woman was critically injured Saturday morning in a two-vehicle wreck on Interstate 90 near Ellensburg, reports KPQ.
The collision occurred on the eastbound side of I-90 near milepost 113, east of Olmstead Place Historical State Park. It was first reported at around 1:22 a.m.
According to the Washington State Patrol, a white 2008 Pontiac G6 was traveling eastbound when it sideswiped an eastbound 1999 Dodge Caravan in the left lane. The impact of the contact caused the Pontiac to veer off the interstate and overturn.
The 47-year-old woman, who was a passenger in the Pontiac, suffered life-threatening injuries. She was transported by airlift to Seattle’s Harborview Medical Center, where she was later listed in stable condition.
Medics also transported the 26-year-old driver of the Pontiac to Yakima Valley Memorial. The extent of their injuries was not immediately clear.
No injuries to the driver of the Dodge or its three passengers were reported.
The Washington State Patrol said the driver of the Pontiac, which was seen traveling at speeds over 100 miles per hour, has since been charged with vehicular assault.
