Blyn woman airlifted to Seattle after wreck

Peninsula Daily News

BLYN — A 26-year-old Blyn-area woman was airlifted to Harborview Medical Center in Seattle after her car hit a tree off Chicken Coop Road late Saturday morning.

The car hit a tree in the 1000 block of Chicken Coup Road about a mile from U.S. Highway 101, and a passer-by called for help at about 11:30 a.m., said Patrick Young, spokesman for Clallam County Fire District No. 3, based in Sequim.

Medics arrived to find the woman alert and determined that she had possible head and neck injuries, Young said.

“That’s why the decision was made to transport her to the trauma center [at Harborview Medical Center],” he said.

The woman was not identified. The fire department does not release names because of privacy issues.

The cause of the wreck had not been determined Saturday.

The woman was transported by ambulance to the helipad near the Olympic Medical Physicians Clinic in downtown Sequim and flown to Seattle from there, Young said.
