Three injured in I-5 crash near Kent

State Patrol troopers arrested a 24-year-old Bothell woman for investigation of vehicular assault after a two-vehicle accident Wednesday morning along northbound Interstate 5 near Kent.

At about 7:51 a.m., a 2000 Subaru Legacy driven by the woman reportedly made an aggressive lane change across multiple lanes and collided with a 2000 Ford Windstar driven by a 27-year-old Federal Way woman in the HOV lane, according to a State Patrol media release. Both vehicles left the roadway and rolled over into the center median, just south of South 188th Street in SeaTac. Drugs or alcohol were involved.

Paramedics transported the Bothell woman to Valley Medical Center in Renton. Paramedics also transported the Federal Way woman and her 26-year-old female passenger to Valley Medical.

The crash caused about a 6-mile backup, according to the state Department of Transportation.
