Jeep rolls in front of hospital

A Jeep SUV hit a tree in front of WhidbeyHealth Medical Center in Coupeville and rolled onto its top this afternoon.

The driver was transported by ambulance the short distance to the hospital. Deputy Leif Haugen with the Coupeville Marshal’s Office said injuries sustained by the Coupeville woman, who was approximately 60 years 0old, appeared to be minor.

The accident happened at about 1:07 p.m. The woman was driving north on Main Street and suddenly swerved to the right. The Jeep hit the curb and a tree, which caused it to roll, Haugen said.

Haugen said he didn’t yet know what caused the driver to turn suddenly.
