JOYCE — A 41-year-old Port Angeles woman was airlifted to a Seattle hospital after she was ejected from her car in a single-car wreck on state Highway 112 near the Joyce Fire Hall on Wednesday.
Ingrid R. Lee, 41, Port Angeles, suffered a broken back, and a collapsed lung in the 5:30 p.m. wreck, after her car drove off the road and struck a tree, the State Patrol said.
Lee was in the emergency room of Harborview Medical Center at 10 p.m. Wednesday night, and her condition was not known by the Harborview nursing supervisor.
Lee was arrested on investigation of driving under the influence, said State Patrol spokeswoman Krista Hedstrom.
Lee was traveling alone in a 1990 Mazda Protege, driving westbound on Highway 112 when her car slid sideways along the highway.
It pushed through a fence and hit a group of trees near the Clallam County Fire District No. 4 building, the State Patrol said.
The westbound lane of Highway 112 was temporarily blocked.
Personnel from the Joyce Fire Hall helped direct traffic around the wreck until State Patrol troopers arrived.
