Bothell accident victim dies
BOTHELL--Janet Carlson, a 50-year-old Bothell resident critically injured in a Feb. 16 collision in Redmond, succumbed to her injuries at Harborview Hospital on Sunday, Feb. 28. A preliminary investigation indicates a 47-year-old Woodinville resident ran a red light on eastbound NE 51st, colliding with Carlson's 1997 Saturn Coupe as she turned east on NE 51st from the SR-520 offramp, according to Redmond Police Public Information Officer Brian Coats. The man, driving a 1997 Isuzu Trooper, was not seriously hurt. If found guilty, the man will receive a ticket for "Failing to Obey a Traffic Control Device," said Coats. Running a red light is not considered negligent or reckless disregard for the safety of others, under the criminal offense guidelines of Washington law, said Coates.
Former Deputy Chief of Operations Robert Peterson has been named Chief of the Northshore Fire Department, not of the Bothell department, as was reported in last week's edition.
