A woman was sent to the hospital Tuesday after a rollover accident on Highway 525.

The crash occurred just before 3 p.m. just south of the traffic light at Ken’s Korner in Clinton. Sgt. Laura Price with the Island County Sheriff’s Office said the sole occupant was transported to Whidbey General Hospital. It’s unclear whether she suffered injuries in the crash or went as a precautionary measure.

The woman, driving a white Nissan pickup truck, was southbound heading toward the ferry when she slammed on her brakes to avoid hitting backed up traffic on the highway, according to Price. The driver turned to avoid the vehicles in front of her but began to slide and rolled into a shallow ditch.

Wet roads may have contributed to the accident, Price said.

The truck came to rest on its roof, and one or more motorists stopped to help the woman out of the stricken vehicle. The witnesses left the scene when emergency responders arrived.

The southbound lane was closed for less than one hour following the accident.
