Eight Quinault Indian Nation tribal elders and staff members have been injured in a traffic crash in Aberdeen, a tribal spokesman said.
Spokesman Steve Robinson said the Quinault group was headed to Seattle-Tacoma International Airport on Tuesday morning when their van collided with a pickup truck.
Robinson says two elders were airlifted to Harborview Medical Center in Seattle, one with a broken pelvis and the other with a broken pelvis and broken ribs. Other injuries in the crash included broken bones, bumps and bruises.
None of the injuries was considered critical, Robinson said.
The crash caused the van to flip over. Robinson said the two people in the pickup were not seriously hurt.
The elders had been on their way to attend a conference in Phoenix, Arizona.
