Two people were killed in a car accident late Monday evening in Mount Vernon, Washington. Emergency responders arrived at the scene to find a wrecked car and a SUV near the 3000 block of Little Mountain Road.
Both passengers of the car, a silver two-door, were pronounced dead at the scene of the car accident. The driver of the SUV was treated with minor injuries.
“The force of the impact caved in the side of the silver car, killing both occupants,” said Mount Vernon police Lieutenant Greg Booth.
Washington State Patrol said the silver car veered across the center line, lost control, and was turned sideways when it hit the SUV traveling in the westbound lane. The occupants of the silver car are believed to have died instantly in the car accident.
Washington State Police said the driver of the SUV fully cooperated with the investigation into the car accident and even gave a voluntary blood sample. After submitting to an examination administered by an expert of the Washington State Patrol he was released.
The identities of the victims who died in the car accident have yet to be determined by the Skagit County Medical Examiner.
Little Mountain Road was shut for over three hours as the wreckage from the car accident was cleared.
