A 24-year-old Oak Harbor woman was seriously injured in a one-car accident on North Whidbey early Wednesday morning.
The Washington State Patrol reported that Fancy Lawson was driving a 1998 Lincoln Navigator northbound on Highway 20 just south of Monkeyhill Road. Lawson attempted to pass another vehicle on the right, but left the road to the right. The car rolled end over end. Lawson was partially ejected.
Lawson was injured and transported to Island Hospital in Anacortes for treatment. She was stabilized and airlifted to Harborview Medical Center in Seattle. She was listed in satisfactory condition Wednesday afternoon.
The Lincoln Navigator was totaled and towed from the scene.
The State Patrol reported that an illegal pass was the cause of the accident and that possible charges are pending.Contact Whidbey News Times Assistant editor Jessie Stensland at firstname.lastname@example.org or 360.675.6611 ext. 5056.
