Elyse Van den Bosch, the publisher of the Island’s Sounder, The Journal of the San Juan Islands and The Islands’ Weekly, and her husband, Fred Munder, were injured in an Orcas Island rollover car accident when the SUV they were riding in was clipped by an 18-wheeler as they were headed towards the ferry landing.
Colleen Armstrong, writing for the Islands’ Sounder, reported the car accident occurred around 6:30am on Orcas Road as the pair was headed south near Cove Road. A trailer attached to a semi-truck crossed the line and hit the couple’s SUV. The couple’s SUV then rolled and landed upside down.
Munder suffered both a broken leg and arm and Van den Bosch suffered a fractured hip in the motor vehicle accident. The couple were both airlifted to St. Joseph Hospital in Bellingham where Van den Bosch was transported to Harborview Medical Center in Seattle for surgery.
The truck driver was cited in the motor vehicle accident.
