For those wondering about the traffic last night in the town, it was a re-route (obviously).
It appears that Katherine Hughes (local resident) was headed East on HWY 2 and she overcorrected for some reason. She hit a guardrail and then a power pole, then the vehicle came to rest on its side. Katherine was airlifted to Harborview.
If anybody reading this knows of her condition, please let us know.
UPDATE 2:37PM 03.06.10
Update on Katherine from our earlier News as It Happens today:
From a reliable source (MW)…verbatim :
Sat, March 6, 1:40 p.m. serious, BUT STABLE, condition. Per hospital policy & request, family members must be contacted first for visitation authorization, at this time. No other information can be released for the blog at this time per HIPAA and hospital policy.
Thanks MW for reporting.
Note: It would be nice to have the Sheriff in town on a re-route. Semi’s were doing at least 40mph through town and some cars were going even faster. Speed bumps mean nothing to angry drivers in a hurry to get to their destination.
