GRANITE FALLS — A woman found seriously injured along the Mountain Loop Highway outside of Granite Falls on Monday night was flown by helicopter to Harborview Medical Center in Seattle.

Police found the woman after someone called 911 about 7:45 p.m. to report someone lying in the roadway, Snohomish County sheriff’s spokeswoman Shari Ireton said.

Detectives were still at the scene late Monday night. It wasn’t immediately clear how the woman had been hurt, Ireton said. Police did not release any further details about her injuries or what they believe might have happened.

The woman was found near where the highway crosses 119th Street NE, Ireton said.
