MOUNT VERNON — A woman from Tulalip was killed in a three-vehicle crash Wednesday afternoon on northbound I-5 near Conway in Skagit County. Three other people were sent to hospitals. The crash prompted the closure of the northbound lanes for about three hours.
A semi-truck rear-ended the Hyundai Santa Fe the woman was driving, the Washington State Patrol said. She had slowed for traffic near a construction zone. The State Patrol identified the dead woman as Cynthia W. Prosser, 64.
An Arlington woman, 62, a passenger in the Hyundai, was taken to Harborview Medical Center in Seattle. She was in satisfactory condition Thursday morning, hospital spokeswoman Susan Gregg said.
The truck’s impact propelled the Hyundai into a Toyota Camry driven by a 71-year-old Edmonds man, the patrol said. He and a 68-year-old passenger were taken to Skagit Valley Hospital.
The State Patrol was investigating and charges were pending.
