7 hurt in Sunday Seattle head-on collision

Seven people were hurt in a head-on collision between an SUV and a minivan in Seattle’s Highland Park neighborhood Sunday afternoon.  None of the injuries appeared to be life-threatening,  according to police.

A Seattle Police spokesman said the cause is not known. The collision occurred shortly before 4 p.m. in the 1200 block of South Holden Street and involved a westbound Hyundai Santa Fe SUV and an eastbound Dodge Caravan minivan.   Fire department medics treated three adults and two small children from the SUV; all were taken to Harborview Medical Center.  Two of the adults suffered serious, but not life-threatening, injuries, police reported.

Two adults in the minivan were also transported to Harborview, one with serious injuries.  Three young children in the van were evaluated at the scene by medics, but did not need to go to the hospital.

The street was closed for several hours. Detectives from the Seattle Police Traffic Collision Squad are investigating. Police said neither driver showed any sign of impairment from drugs or alcohol.
