The new stop signs on Woodinville-Snohomish Road at the railroad crossing have been giving motorists some trouble.
A Nissan Sentra and a Honda Civic collided just past noon last Tuesday when the southbound car ran the intersection, T-boning the car making a left and sending a 26-year-old Woodinville woman to Group Health Hospital, according to fire crews on the scene. The other driver, a 24-year-old Bothell woman, also received minor injuries.
Motorists frequently traveling this road say they have seen numerous people miss the new intersection, which was designed to allow construction trucks from the TRF project onto the road.
In other incidents:
- A 17-year-old Woodinville woman received a minor head injury in a car-truck accident in the 18900 block of 142nd Avenue in Woodinville last Wednesday at 11:45 a.m. She was transported to Evergreen Hospital for treatment.
- Two Bothell women were temporarily trapped in their Jeep Laredo when it was driven off SR-522, rolling onto its top on the northern median on the Home Depot road. Both women, ages 23 and 33, were able to get out on their own and did not report any serious injuries, but were transported to Evergreen as a precaution. One had minor pain to the left shoulder.
Bothell emergency crews received the call at 4:07 p.m. and were their within nine minutes. Both were wearing their seatbelts, which suspended them in the upside-down vehicle.
"That really saved them a lot. They really could have been thrown around that vehicle," said Cathleen Wiggins, public fire educator for Bothell. "It definitely prevented any kind of serious injury."
