Three injured in two-car Highway 101 wreck on Saturday

IN THE PHOTO on the right, Clallam County Fire District No. 2 and sheriff’s personnel gather at U.S. Highway 101 at South Brooke Avenue east of Port Angeles after a two-car wreck shortly before 10 a.m. Saturday.

Rebecca Solway, 34, of Sequim failed to stop at a red light, and her 1984 Buick Skylark struck a 1998 Chevrolet Blazer driven by Sherry L. Melin, 27, of Bremerton, which was making a left turn from Brooke Avenue to 101, the State Patrol said.

Solway — who was to be cited, the State Patrol said — was in satisfactory condition at Olympic Medical Center later that day, while her passenger, Kyliegh Solway, 10, and Melin had been treated and discharged.

The eastbound lanes of 101 were blocked for almost an hour. Both vehicles were totaled, officers said.
