EVERETT — A woman was taken to the hospital in critical condition after crashing her car Tuesday afternoon.

She first hit a traffic signal’s power box at the intersection of 19th Avenue SE and 110th Street SE.

Her car then ran into a tree around 2:30 p.m.

The car caught on fire, said Everett Police Sgt. Maryjane Hacker.

A group of bystanders worked to get her out of the vehicle. No one else was injured.

The woman was taken to Providence Regional Medical Center Everett, Hacker said.

All lanes of 19th Avenue SE were closed temporarily, but had mostly reopened by about 4:30 p.m. Traffic signals were still without power then, at 110th Street SE and 112th Street SE.

“We’re asking people to treat those as you would a four-way stop,” Hacker said.

An investigation is ongoing.
