Sequim teen rolls car in national park

Sequim Gazette staff

Gravel in the roadway caused a 17-year-old Sequim girl to roll her 1995 Toyota Camry on Sunday evening along Lake Crescent.

 

Clallam County Fire District 2 reports that the girl was driving east on U.S. Highway 101 in the Olympic National Park, a short distance from the Storm King Ranger Station, with her 16-year-old sister before she lost traction in the gravel and flipped the car on its top in a ditch.

 

Both girls were wearing their seat belts and released to their parents’ custody without medical assistance.

 

Firefighters were called to the scene at 10:14 p.m. and the scene was cleared at 11:26 p.m.

 

Fire officials remind drivers that roadways become slippery during early season rains due to heavy rains and oils that have built up over the summer months. They encourage drivers reduce speeds before approaching corners, and drive with due regard.
