A 46-year-old woman drove into a Kirkland car wash Wednesday evening, injuring a worker there and herself, according to the city’s police department.
The woman reportedly had a medical issue before driving through a fence near the Rose Hill Car Wash, 12633 N.E. 85th St., from an adjacent parking lot shortly before 6:30 p.m., Sgt. Rob Saloum wrote in a news release.
Investigators believe the woman struck the car-wash employee, who is male, and then pinned him to the building in the crash, according to Saloum.
Medics took the woman to a Redmond medical facility with minor injuries and the employee to Harborview Medical Center with “more extensive” leg injuries, the release said.
