NORTH BEND - Two Mount Si High School students were injured last week when the car they were in apparently slipped off a road in the Uplands development outside North Bend and slammed into a tree.
Cristine Carney, 17, a senior, was driving Tiffany Moes, 15, a sophomore, to school the morning of Monday, Oct. 14. The accident occurred about 7:20 a.m. in the 14600 block of Uplands Way Southeast.
Moes was airlifted to Harborview Medical Center for extensive head injuries. As of early this week, she was breathing on her own but remained in a coma and in critical condition.
Carney, who was treated for cracked ribs and a punctured lung, was released this weekend from Overlake Hospital Medical Center.
Both were wearing seatbelts and drugs or alcohol were not a factor in the accident, said Detective Syb Hiemstra of the King County Sheriff's Office.
Hiemstra said the cause of the accident is still being investigated.
