18-year-old woman escapes serious injury in I-5 rollover crash

Wednesday afternoon near South 188th Street in SeaTac

An 18-year-old woman escaped serious injury despite a high-speed rollover crash along northbound Interstate 5 early Wednesday afternoon near South 188th Street in SeaTac.

“Witnesses stated that she was potentially racing another vehicle and traveling at a high speed prior to the collision,” Washington State Patrol Trooper Rick Johnson said in an email. “She was not ejected and sustained minor injuries. She was the only occupant of the vehicle.”

The crash caused a traffic backup due to the number of emergency vehicles that responded and the left lane being blocked, Johnson said.

Johnson said he did not have a hometown for the woman.
