Woman’s car flips over after hitting an SUV

EVERETT — Anthony Pierce replaced the tailgate on his car just three months ago.

He’ll have to do it again.

Wednesday morning, a woman hit a sport utility vehicle parked behind Pierce’s station wagon, pushing the vehicle into the back of the car.

The woman’s car somehow flipped and landed on its top on a hill in the 3400 block of Rockefeller.

"It sounded like a garbage truck, but the garbage was picked up on Monday," said Pierce, who was inside his house getting ready for work.

The woman, in her 50s, was taken to Everett Providence Medical Center on Colby Avenue. Her injuries were not thought to be life threatening, said Everett police Lt. Kathy Atwood.

It isn’t clear how fast the woman was driving or how her car ended up on its top, Atwood said.

"I’m just glad I wasn’t in my car," Pierce said.

Everett: Man burned by high-voltage power line

A man working at Boeing’s Everett facility was burned when he accidentally hit a high-voltage power line Wednesday afternoon.

The man was digging near a fence when he struck the power line, which sparked and burned the man’s face and mouth, said Boeing spokesman Marc Birtel.

The man, who worked at a fencing company hired by Boeing, was taken to Boeing’s medical facility and examined by company doctors, Birtel said.

The man was then airlifted to Harborview Medical Center in Seattle. His injuries did not appear to be life threatening, said Everett Fire Marshal Warren Burns.

The accident briefly knocked out power to several Boeing buildings, but did not affect airline production, Birtel said.
