One person injured in three-car crash on Maxwelton Road

A three-car crash on Maxwelton Road sent one person to the hospital about 9 a.m. Monday.

The small pileup happened near the entrance to South Whidbey Community Park, just past South Whidbey High School.

The injured person was not a student, said a South Whidbey Fire/EMS official. All three cars had driven to the side of the road by the time the fire and emergency medical technicians responded, but the damage looked like a rear-end accident.

"It looked like somebody stopped and then they got tail-ended," said Assistant Fire Chief Paul Busch.

The minor injury was the busiest the fire district was all weekend. Despite high wind speeds Saturday, South Whidbey Fire/EMS responded to a couple of calls for downed trees, and only three calls total on Sunday (none were wind-related).

There were no injuries or property damage caused by the wind, Busch said.
