Child dies after being struck by vehicle; second child airlifted for injuries

A fatality accident occurred on Monday, just north of the Grays Harbor County line when two children were struck by a vehicle.

The Washington State Patrol states that around 1pm, a 67-year-old Lake Stevens woman was driving a 2003 Toyota Rav4 north on US 101 near Queets.

The woman reportedly suffered a medical emergency, losing consciousness and drifting onto the shoulder of the road.

When the vehicle came out of a ditch, it struck two children, ages 10 and 12.

A 10-year-old Queets girl struck by the vehicle died at the scene. 

The 12-year-old girl, also from Queets, was transported to Harbor Regional Health Community Hospital before being airlifted to Mary Bridge Children’s Hospital.

Charges are pending against the Lake Stevens driver.
