Woman injured in Stanwood wreck

An 18-year-old woman sustained critical injuries in a car accident in downtown Stanwood on Thursday. She was taken to Skagit Valley Hospital.

According to Herald.net, the two-car accident happened near the intersection of 88th Avenue NW and 271st Street NW about 3:30 p.m.

A pickup truck struck the woman’s Mustang convertible. The pickup had been heading south on 88th Avenue NW. The driver of the pickup was uninjured. There were no other injuries, as neither car had any passengers.

According to Darin Reid, assistant chief with the Stanwood-Camano Island Fire Department, aid crews requested that the woman be flown by helicopter to a Harborview hospital, but bad weather in Arlington grounded the chopper. She was taken by ambulance to the Mount Vernon hospital instead.
