The Wenatchee World reports that a Leavenworth family, a grandmother, grandfather and two grandchildren were involved in an accident caused by a 16-year-old teenager who was driving without a license.
The Leavenworth family was driving in a Nissan Sentra on Highway 2 when a Dodge Caravan driven by an unlicensed teen clipped them causing their Nissan to rollover onto the side of the road.
The grandmother was trapped in the car as it lay flipped on its top. She may have suffered chemical burns due to spilled gasoline. The report said a passerby was quoted as saying “She was just soaking wet with gasoline.”
The family was taken to Central Washington Hospital in Wenatchee for treatment.
The teenager from Cashmere was cited for “driving without a license and failing to yield,” according to Trooper Brian Moore of the Washington State Patrol.
