Five, including toddler, injured in 405 crash in Kirkland
Five people were injured during a crash along Interstate 405 Sunday night as the vehicle they were in spun out of control, according to Washington State Patrol.
The vehicle was heading southbound near State Route 520 just after 10 p.m. when it lost control and rotated, said Julie Startup, WSP trooper.
"When the vehicle rotated, it was struck by another car on the driver side that couldn't avoid it," said Startup. It is unclear what caused the car to spin out, she noted.
The passengers in the car that lost control - including several children - were transported to Overlake Hospital for treatment. The driver, who along with a 2-year-old girl suffered the most serious injuries, was transported to Harborview.
The victims' conditions are unknown, however their injuries at the scene appeared minor, said Startup.
The driver of the other car was not injured.
