A two-car collision shut down a section of Highway 525 in Freeland today.

The crash occurred at about 1:50 p.m. Monday, Nov. 25, at the intersection of Freeland Avenue and the state route, in front of the Texaco gas station.

According to Trooper Norm Larsen with the Washington State Patrol, Theodora Wells, 87, was entering the intersection in a 1997 Toyota Camry from Freeland Avenue when her vehicle collided with a Chrysler Aspen — year unknown — driven by Barbara Higbee-Price, 48.

Higbee-Price's vehicle was flipped onto its passenger side and came to rest in the northbound lane. Wells' car was damaged as well, with much of the front bumper torn off.

No injuries were reported.

The details of the crash were still under investigation immediately following the collision. The crash shut down both lanes of traffic, from Fish Road to just south of Freeland Avenue. Firefighters on scene estimated the road would reopen at about 3 p.m.
