Nine people injured in two-car accident near Kent

Nine people were injured, one seriously, in a two-car accident near Kent about 5:45 p.m. Sunday.

Two vehicles collided near the intersection of South 277th Street and Star Lake Road, sending nine people, including one child, to area hosptials, said Captain Kyle Ohashi, spokesman for the Kent Fire Department.

A van carrying an unknown number of people hit a sedan, sending seven passengers from the van to the hospital with minor  injuries. Two people in the sedan were also injured, one seriously.

None of the injuries appeared life-threatening, Ohashi said.

Accident investigators are still at the scene. South 277th Street is expected to be closed for several hours.
