Bellingham Man Hospitalized in Multi-Vehicle Crash
A three-vehicle collision on State Route 530 west of Arlington led to multiple injuries and property damage Thursday afternoon. According to police, 36-year-old Scott Rockwell was driving eastbound on SR 530 when his Ford Explorer was struck by a Ford LTD that had crossed the centerline. The LTD, driven by 19-year-old Desiree Lange of Arlington, then hit a third car driven by 61-year-old Lela Stevens of Granite Falls.
All three drivers were transported to Cascade Valley Hospital to be treated for their injuries. Police reported that all drivers were wearing seat belts at the time of the accident and that they do not believe that drugs or alcohol were involved in the crash.
