Slick roads, inclement weather, and young drivers were probably responsible for a serious Washington car accident
involving two Yelm High School teens on Tuesday morning. The Washington State Patrol
reported that 16-year-old Skye Calhoun and her passenger, 16-year-old Alexandria Bachmeier, were driving northbound on Morris Road in Yelm when the rain-slicked roads caused the young driver to lose control of her vehicle and cross into the opposite lane. The girls hit a pickup truck head on.
Both were airlifted to Harborview Medical Center in Seattle, with Calhoun in critical condition and Bachmeier in serious condition. Both suffered head injuries, chest injuries, and leg injuries in the head-on crash.
The Washington State Patrol said that the rainy morning, in addition to the recent dry spell, made the roads especially dangerous on Tuesday morning. Although the crash is still under investigation, police also believe Calhoun was driving too fast for the road conditions.
