5 injured in crash on I-5 in Lynnwood

A rollover crash on I-5 Tuesday left five young people injured. They were apparently fleeing a hit-and-run accident, said Washington State Patrol trooper Kirk Rudeen.

According to troopers, the 17-year-old driver hit an occupied pickup truck in Lynn¬wood and was speeding away northbound in the carpool lane on I-5 e when his SUV rolled near I-40.

Rudeen also said that two of the passengers, 17-year-old Everett girl and a 19-year-old Lynnwood woman were taken to Harborview Medical Center in Seattle with serious injuries, though their injuries did not appear to be life-threatening.

The driver and two additional passengers, ages 20 and 18, also sustained injuries that were not believed to be life-threatening, Rudeen said. The passengers were taken to the Colby campus of Providence Everett Medical Center. The driver was treated at the scene and released to a parent, said Snohomish County Fire District 1 spokeswoman Leslie Hynes.
