2 still in hospital after crash near Sultan on Monday

SULTAN — Two people remained hospitalized Tuesday after a two-car collision along Old Owen Road near Sultan the day before.

Investigators believe a 20-year-old Monroe-area woman was driving eastbound in a Volkswagen Jetta when she crossed into oncoming traffic, Snohomish County sheriff’s spokeswoman Shari Ireton said Tuesday.

The Jetta then was side-swiped by a full-sized pickup, about 4:30 p.m. Monday.

The Jetta’s driver and a passenger were taken via helicopter to Harborview Medical Center in Seattle.

The Jetta driver was listed in serious condition on Tuesday, according to police. The passenger, a 23-year-old man believed to be from Canada, was in critical condition.

The truck driver, a 52-year-old Monroe area man, was treated at a local hospital and later released.

The sheriff’s collision detectives are investigating.
