3 hurt, 1 critically, in Woodinville crash

WOODINVILLE, Wash. — Three people were taken to Harborview Medical Center after a crash in Woodinville early Tuesday.

King County deputies and firefighters from Eastside Fire & Rescue were called to the 14200 block of Northeast Woodinville Duvall Road after an SUV crashed into a tree across from the Woodinville Café, near downtown, at around 3 a.m.

Authorities said the driver was pinned under the steering wheel. He has critical facial and internal injuries.

His two passengers — one in the front seat and one in the back seat — were thrown from the SUV’s passenger compartment and onto its hood.

Firefighters said the passengers also have life-threatening injuries.

There was also a dog in the SUV, but it was unhurt and remained with deputies until animal control arrived.

The road was closed for the response but has since reopened.
