  • Oct 2, 2008 at 10:14AM

Three Snoqualmie youths were injured, one severely, in a crash on state Route 202 in North Bend Aug. 14, just before 1 p.m. The car they were in, a 1985 Honda Civic, above, was traveling westbound on the highway near Northwest Eighth Street at the bridge. According to the King County Sheriff's Office, the vehicle was traveling at a high rate of speed and apparently didn't see a Jaguar, driven by a 45-year-old North Bend woman, stopped on the bridge over the Snoqualmie River behind a car waiting to make a left turn onto Northwest Eigth Street.
The Civic swerved, hit the Jaguar and went into oncoming traffic where it collided with an oncoming Winnebago motor home driven by a 66-year-old man from Georgia. The three youths - ages 14, 16 and 17 - were injured. Two were taken to Overlake Hospital Medical Center in Bellevue and the most seriously injured was taken to Harborview Medical Center in Seattle.
There were no other injuries. The sheriff's office did not identify the individuals involved. Detectives are still investigating which of the three was actually driving the Honda.
