A three car-collision in Freeland early Thursday evening left the drivers visibly shaken, but nobody left the scene with injuries.

Medical responders didn’t transport any of the three involved drivers to WhidbeyHealth.

The crash occurred at the intersection of Highway 525 and Harbor Avenue around 6:30 p.m. South Whidbey Fire/EMS Deputy Chief Mike Cotton said the wreck likely occurred when a beige Ford explorer, heading north on the highway, collided with a purple Honda sedan that was turning left from southbound Highway 525 onto Harbor Avenue. A third vehicle, a white Saab sedan, was struck at the intersection as the driver was waiting to turn onto the highway from Harbor Avenue.

Cotton said visibility may also have been a factor in the crash.

“The setting sun might have played a part in the wreck,” Cotton said, referring to the northbound driver who heading into the setting sun.

Both lanes of Harbor Avenue were closed for about one hour and 30 minutes. Traffic on Highway 525 was unobstructed.
