Highway 20 clear after 2-vehicle traffic accident

Highway 20 has been cleared after a two-vehicle motor vehicle accident occurred around noon today near the Kettles Gate.

One woman was transported to WhidbeyHealth Medical Center for evaluation, according to Deputy Lane Campbell of the Island County Sheriff’s Office. Campbell said she appeared uninjured but was transported because she is pregnant and complained of back pain.

A woman driving a black Dodge Journey Crossroad didn’t see another woman in a white Chevy Cruze as she was stopped trying to turn left into the parking lot at Kettles Gate, Campbell said. The woman in the black Dodge was uninjured.

The accident blocked traffic for around 30 minutes until it could be cleared. At the time of clearing, the backup of cars was around a mile long each way.

This was the second accident within a quarter mile of each other today, Campbell said. The other one occurred at 9:07 a.m. on Winterhawk Lane. One person involved was transported to the hospital for observation, but had no serious injuries, he said. The area rarely sees accidents, Campbell said.

“I’m not sure what it is about today,” he said.
