PORT TOWNSEND — A three-car wreck sent one woman to a hospital.
An unidentified woman was taken to Jefferson Healthcare for evaluation of minor injuries after the collision at 2611 Sims Way at about 1:20 p.m. Friday, according to Bill Beezley, East Jefferson Fire-Rescue spokesman.
The Port Townsend police officer who investigated the wreck could not be reached for comment Friday.
Beezley said drivers and witnesses told firefighters that an eastbound white Subaru Forrester driven by a 63-year-old woman with four passengers stopped for a car turning into the Safeway Fast Shop when her car was struck from behind by a silver Subaru Outback.
The Outback, driven by a 62-year-old Sequim woman with one passenger, was then struck from behind by a white Dodge Sprinter van driven by a 63-year-old Chimacum man with no passengers, Beezley said firefighters were told.
One passenger in the white Subaru was taken to Jefferson Healthcare hospital in Port Townsend with minor injuries, he said, adding that no one else was hurt.
Traffic on Sims Way was slowed for about 45 minutes while emergency medical technicians evaluated the occupants and the site was cleaned up.
