A head-on collision, which left one woman in serious condition on Saturday night, is being investigated as possibly DUI related, according to police.

A car carrying five female members of bridal party was traveling northbound up Juanita Drive NE in Kirkland just after 6 p.m. when a southbound car crossed the center line in the 13800 block and the two vehicles collided.
"The female driver of the southbound vehicle was ejected from her car," said Kirkland Police Department Sgt. Rob Saloum. "She was transported to Harborview Hospital with a possible brain injury but is expected to survive."
The five females in the northbound vehicle were transported to Evergreen Hospital with possible broken bones and other non-life threatening injuries.
"The collision is being investigated as possibly DUI related," said Saloum. "The Kirkland Police Department’s Traffic Unit responded to the scene and will be conducting the investigation."
