March 5, 2013
A head-on collision turned fatal after a Chrysler car struck an oncoming truck.
At 6:44 p.m. Feb. 25, Issaquah police responded to the 22800 block of Southeast 43rd Way where the wreck occurred. Witnesses at the scene told police that the car, driven by an 83-year-old unidentified Issaquah female, headed down the street without headlights before abruptly veering onto the other side of the road.
Eastside Fire & Rescue rescued the woman from her vehicle and then took her to Harborview Medical Center for treatment of serious injuries. An unidentified 31-year-old Renton man who drove the truck suffered minor wrist injuries and was allowed to leave the scene.
The police were notified later in the week that the woman had died from her injuries.
