Oak Harbor woman seriously injured in Whidbey Island car accident

The Whidbey News-Times reports that Kathryn Simpson, 22, of Oak Harbor was critically injured in a single car accident on Sunday morning around 4am.

According to the report, Simpson was driving southbound on Highway 20 when she lost control of her 200 Ford Taurus on a curve and rolled it. Police suspect speed and alcohol were factors in the car accident.

Simpson was airlifted to Harborview Medical Center in Seattle, a Level I Trauma Center, for undisclosed injuries. Her condition was described as “serious.” Hopefully, she will recover from her injuries.

There has been a dramatic decrease in the number of alcohol-related car accident deaths in recent years. According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, there has been a 42 percent decline in the number of passenger vehicle drivers killed in alcohol related accidents since 1982. Safer cars and people getting the message that driving after drinking can impair driving.
