Nancy Adams, 56, originally was taken to OMC after the 2:30 p.m. wreck but later was moved to another hospital offering a higher level of care, said the nursing supervisor.
The supervisor did not know to which hospital Adams had been transferred.

Morgan T. Janisse, 25, was driving a 1995 gray Plymouth Voyage eastbound on U.S. Highway 101 with his 1-year-old daughter when he suffered a seizure and crossed the centerline of the road, according to the State Patrol.

The collision shut down both lanes of 101 for about 15 minutes.

The wreck was cleared by about 4:40 p.m. Friday, Young added.
Sequim police and Clallam County sheriff's deputies also assisted at the wreck.
