Carlsborg Road- Highway 101 crash sends four to hospitals

SEQUIM — A Sequim man who the State Patrol said blew through a red light at U.S. Highway 101 and Carlsborg Road and caused a three-car pile-up Friday remained in a Seattle hospital in satisfactory condition Saturday.

Justin Thompson-Petersen, 23, was airlifted with serious injuries from Sequim Valley Airport. He was in Harborview Medical Center on Saturday.

The State Patrol said charges are pending.

Three others were hospitalized after the wreck, which occurred a little after 3 p.m. Friday. Samantha Grimes, 30, of Port Angeles and Chelsea Trevenen, 32, of Sequim were taken to Olympic Medical Center but were not listed in the patient census Saturday.

The condition of an unnamed minor, a 7-year-old girl traveling with Grimes, was unknown Saturday. Hospitals need names to check on patient conditions for news reports.

Thompson-Petersen was traveling west on U.S. Highway 101 when he didn’t stop for a red light while traveling at a high rate of speed, the State Patrol said.

His 2002 Mazda Protege struck a 2011 GMC Terrain driven by Grimes, who was entering the highway from Carlsborg Road and then rotated to hit the back of 2017 Chevy Equinox driven by Trevenen, the State Patrol said.

Grimes had three passengers with her; she and an 7-year-old Port Angeles girl were transported with injuries to Olympic Medical Center. Other passengers — Ryan C. Erdmann, 37, of Port Angeles, and an unidentified 8-year-old girl, also of Port Angeles — were not injured, the State Patrol said.

Portions of the highway were closed for several hours.

Thompson-Petersen and Grimes were not wearing seat belts, while all others involved in the crash were, according to the State Patrol.

Troopers said that drugs or alcohol were not involved.

Thompson-Petersen and Trevenen’s vehicles were completely destroyed in the collision, while Grimes’ vehicle had reportable damage, the State Patrol said.
