UPDATED: Carlsborg collision sends four to area hospitals Friday

Four people were hospitalized Friday afternoon, Nov. 13, following a collision in Carlsborg.

Washington State Patrol reports Justin Thompson-Petersen, 23, of Sequim, was traveling west on U.S. Highway 101 when he allegedly didn’t stop for a red light while travelling at a high rate of speed.

His 2002 Mazda Protege struck a 2011 GMC Terrain driven by 30-year-old Samantha Grimes of Port Angeles, who was entering the highway from Carlsborg Road.

Grimes’ vehicle spun and hit the back of 2017 Chevy Equinox driven by Chelsea Trevenen, 32, of Sequim, the State Patrol reported.

Thompson-Petersen was airlifted with serious injuries from Sequim Valley Airport.

According to family members, Thompson-Petersen is on life support machines at Providence Regional Medical Center in Everett as of Nov 18.
