A Redmond woman remains in stable condition at a Bellevue hospital after she drove through a red light at the intersection of Bel-Red Road and Northeast 40th Street and collided with another vehicle early Thursday morning.
Traffic officers from the Redmond Police Department were dispatched to the nasty-looking, two-vehicle collision at around 6 a.m. Police officers closed down the roadway for about five hours at the intersection near the Bellevue-Redmond border during the collision investigation.
The 54-year-old woman was driving a Ford Explorer westbound on Northeast 40th Street when the sports utility vehicle flipped onto its side after a T-bone collision with a Ford Ranger truck, which was heading northbound on Bel-Red Road, according to police spokesman Michael Dowd.
Redmond firefighters also rushed to the scene and cut the top off the Explorer to get access to the woman, who was transported to Overlake Hospital Medical Center with injuries to her arm, Dowd said.
The woman is in stable condition, according to an Overlake spokesperson.
The driver of the Ranger, a 32-year-old Bellevue man, was uninjured, Dowd said.
