Victims of Monday night I-5 collision doing well

A slowing disabled vehicle  was the trigger of a late Monday night collision involving three cars and a semitruck on the northbound Interstate 5  near the Interstate 90 interchange.

Three people were taken to Harborview Medical Center in what was reported to be critical condition. However today,  two of them, a woman, 18, and a man, 31, were released, according to hospital spokeswoman Susan Gregg. Another 18-year-old woman remains hospitalized in satisfactory condition, Gregg said.

The collision was set off when a Mitsubishi Galant crashed into the back of a slowing Toyota Celica, which had lost a tire while driving in a middle lane, according to Trooper George Englebright, a spokesman for the Washington State Patrol.

A Subaru Legacy then hit the Mitsubishi, sending the latter into the path of a semitruck, under which it became stuck.

The driver of the Subaru had a blood alcohol above the legal limit and was booked for vehicular assault by the King County Sheriff’s Office, Englebright said.
