One killed, five injured in crash

An Oak Harbor man is dead, five people were injured and a woman is in jail following a Saturday afternoon collision on North Whidbey, according to the Washington State Patrol.

The State Patrol reports that Oak Harbor resident Cindy L. Wilson, 57, was driving a 2009 Jeep Wrangler SUV west on Frostad Road and failed to yield at the stop sign at the intersection with the highway.

Wilson’s Jeep collided with a 2011 Jeep Grand Cherokee SUV driven by Reed Hall, 53, of Oak Harbor, that was headed south on the highway.

Steven M. Parson, 50, of Oak Harbor was a back-seat passenger in Wilson’s Jeep Wrangler and was ejected from the vehicle. He was pronounced dead at the scene, according to a State Patrol spokesperson.

Wilson was injured and transported to Island Hospital in Anacortes. She was later booked into the Island County jail on suspicion of vehicular homicide and two counts of vehicular assault, according to the jail roster.

Hall was injured and transported to WhidbeyHealth Medical Center for treatment.

Jeffery T. Parson, 25, of Oak Harbor was also a passenger in the Wrangler and was transported to Island Hospital.

Hall’s Grand Cherokee was carrying two passengers who were injured. Oak Harbor residents Ruby Hall, 50, and Tucker Hall, 16, were transported to WhidbeyHealth Medical Center.

The State Patrol report states “drugs or alcohol” were likely factors in the crash.
