Two children were injured in a Skyway home on Saturday morning when their mother accidentally crashed a pickup into the house, according to the King County Sheriff’s Office.
The 48-year-old woman was backing out of her driveway in the 10800 block of Garden Place about 8 a.m. when she struck something, according to Sheriff’s Office spokesman Sgt. John Hall. She then put the pickup into drive and either hit the accelerator or hit the accelerator and the brake at the same time, Hall said. The pickup crashed into the home, injuring her 5- and 10-year-old children, Hall said.
The two kids suffered what appeared to be minor injuries and were taken to Valley General Hospital in Renton for treatment, he said. One may have suffered a broken foot, Hall said. The woman was shaken and sore, but did not appear to have serious injuries, he said. She rode with the children to the hospital, Hall said.
Hall said the woman did not show indications of drug or alcohol use and the crash appeared to be “just an accident.”
