David C. Furgeson, 82, remains in Harborview Medical Center in Seattle, while Onalee M. Furgeson, 77, is in Olympic Medical Center in Port Angeles.
The State Patrol said the two were headed east on Highway 101 at about 8 a.m. Friday in a 2004 Toyota Camry.
As the Toyota neared O’Brien Road, it was struck by a black 2002 Suzuki Grand Vitara sport utility vehicle driven by Larissa M. Martin, 27, of Port Angeles, the State Patrol said.
Troopers said Martin was trying to cross Highway 101 from Old Olympic Highway south to O’Brien Road when her SUV hit the Toyota.
Martin was treated at the scene, the State Patrol said.
The State Patrol listed the cause as the SUV failing to yield to the Toyota, adding that charges are pending.
The collision blocked the eastbound lanes of Highway 101 at O’Brien Road for about an hour, according to the state Department of Transportation.
