The King County Sheriff’s Department is reporting that an 81-year old Burien woman was pronounced dead at Harborview Medical Center on Friday (Jan. 28th) after she was involved in an automobile accident.
Police say that the accident happened about 1pm Friday, at the intersection of S. 160th and the Ambaum Cutoff South in Burien.
A 61-year old Des Moines woman was driving a 1992 Dodge Dakota pick-up eastbound on S. 160th. Investigating detectives believe she went through a red light and her vehicle hit a 1994 Pontiac Bonneville that was northbound on the Ambaum Cutoff.
After the initial impact, the Bonneville continued northbound across S. 160th and struck another vehicle facing southbound. That driver was taken to Highline Medical Center with minor injuries.
The driver of the Bonneville was taken to Harborview where she subsequently died.
The driver of the Dodge was admitted to HMC in serious condition.
Identities of the victims were not released.
