AGNEW — A large van and a Subaru Impreza collided head-on this afternoon on U.S. Highway 101 just west of Barr Road in a wreck that injured three people, said a spokesman for Clallam County Fire District No. 3.

The injuries to the people, who were not identified by the fire department because of privacy concerns, were minor to moderate injuries, said Patrick Young, public information officer for the department.

The collision was cleared and both lanes of the highway were open by about 4:40 p.m., Young said.

All three people involved in the collision, a 25-year-old male driver and 1-year-old passenger in the van and a 57-year-old woman driving the Subaru, were taken to Olympic Medical Center in Port Angeles, Young said.

All three were alert and talking when emergency crews arrived, he said.

The collision, which was reported at about 2:30 p.m., shut down both lanes of Highway 101 for about 15 minutes until westbound traffic was diverted to Old Olympic Highway via Kitchen-Dick Road, Young said, while eastbound traffic was allowed through the scene of the wreck with periodic stops.

The State Patrol was investigating the cause of the wreck late this afternoon.

Sequim police and Clallam County sheriff's deputies also responded to the wreck.
