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.Contact South Whidbey Record Sports, South Whidbey School District, South Whidbey Fire/EMS Ben Watanabe at firstname.lastname@example.org or 360-221-5300.
