Two drivers injured in Carlsborg-area wreck Friday night

SEQUIM — Two drivers from Sequim were injured in a two-vehicle crash Friday night at Carlsborg Road and Old Olympic Highway, according to the State Patrol.

The State Patrol reported that Kesa M. Hobson, 34, was injured and transported by ambulance to Olympic Medical Center. The other driver, John M. Ryan, 45, was also reportedly injured and taken to Olympic in a private vehicle.

The condition of the injured drivers was not immediately available.

According to the Patrol, Hobson stopped her 2006 Mazda 6 at a stop sign on Carlsborg Road at Old Olympic Highway at about 10:30 p.m. Ryan was eastbound in a 2013 Chevrolet Caprice on Old Olympic, said the Patrol, but Hobson turned onto the road.

The Patrol reported that the front left corner of Hobson’s Mazda hit the front right of Ryan’s Chevrolet; the Mazda rotated and the two vehicles came to rest with their front ends in contact.

Both vehicles were reported totaled and were towed from the scene.

The State Patrol said that charges of investigation of Driving Under the Influence against Hobson are expected.

Both drivers were using safety restraints, according to the State Patrol.
