KINGSTON — Three people were injured in a two-car accident at 5:15 a.m. July 3.
A woman, 19, of Kingston, another woman, 44, of Kingston, and a 4-year-old passenger in Harrell’s car were all transported to hospitals following a collision one mile west of Kingston on State Route 104.
The 19-year-old, Driver 1, was traveling eastbound on SR-104, and the 44-year-old, Driver 2, and her passenger were traveling westbound on SR-104 when Driver 1’s car crossed the center line and struck Driver 2’s car head on.
Everyone was wearing seat belts and were properly restrained, according to a report from the Washington State Patrol. Driver 1 and the 4-year-old were taken to Harrison Medical Center in Bremerton; Driver 2 was airlifted to Harborview Medical Center in Seattle.
