EVERETT — Police are looking for a car they believe might have played a role in a collision that left three people injured Monday along Highway 99 south of Everett.
The accident occurred around 11 a.m. on the 12900 block of Highway 99, Snohomish County Fire District 1 spokeswoman Leslie Hynes said.
Law enforcement officers are looking for a white passenger car that could have damage to its right side, Washington State Patrol Trooper Keith Leary said. It’s unclear if the car was actually struck or not.
A witness told accident investigators that the white car was travelling southbound on Highway 99 and was in the middle turn lane, Leary said.
It reportedly turned in front of a red car. When the red car tried to avoid a crash, it headed into oncoming traffic and was hit almost head on by a full-sized van, Leary said.
Rosa Joachinosorio, 28, of Lynnwood was driving the red car. She was treated for leg injuries.
A 30-year-old passenger, Maria Huertachavez, who is pregnant, suffered minor injuries.
Huertachavez, of Lynnwood, later was taken to University of Washington Medical Center as a precaution. A 6-year-old boy was treated for minor injuries. All were in stable condition Monday afternoon.
The van driver, Jesse Wilson, 29, of Algona, was not injured.
Traffic was restricted to one lane each direction for about three hours while troopers investigated the accident scene.
