One vehicle was flipped on its top but no one was seriously injured Sunday afternoon in a two-vehicle collision at U.S. Highway 101 and Kitchen-Dick Road that reduced traffic to one lane through the crash site for about an hour.

According to the Washington State Patrol, Betty L. Kaczynski, 59, of Sequim, was driving a Volkswagen Vanagon southbound on Kitchen-Dick Road about 4 p.m. Sunday.

She turned left onto U.S. Highway 101 and collided with an Infiniti driven by David G. Hefton, 23, Port Angeles, flipping her vehicle on its top.

Firefighters removed Kaczynski from the overturned Vanagon. She was treated for a leg injury at Olympic Medical Center and released. Troopers cited her for failure to yield.

Hefton was treated and released from Olympic Medical Center after treatment for injuries to his arm and right side.

Both drivers were wearing seat belts.
