JEFFERSON: 3 HURT IN HEAD-ON CRASH ON HIGHWAY 104

SHINE — Three people were injured — one seriously — when two cars collided on state Highway 104 near Shine on Sunday afternoon.

A Jeep Wrangler was crossing a lane of traffic while turning into the Shine Quarry at 9861 Highway 104 when a GMC Suburban slammed into it, State Patrol Sgt. Brett Yacklin said.

Elizabeth G. Melius, 20, of Poulsbo, a female passenger in the Jeep, was taken by helicopter to Harborview Medical Center in Seattle.

A Harborview nursing supervisor was unavailable Sunday night to provide patient status for Melius.

The drivers of the cars were taken by ambulance to Harrison Memorial Hospital in Bremerton.

Jeep driver Nicolas L. Alford, 20, of Poulsbo, and 34-year-old Mark E. Longstaff of Kingston were listed in fair condition, according to hospital staff.

Both cars were totaled in the high-speed wreck. The Jeep flipped onto its roof.
