A 62-year-old woman was killed in a car accident near Olympia Tuesday morning after she crashed into a barrier on Interstate 5.
According to the Washington State Patrol, 62-year-old Carolyn Fisk was driving a 1998 Ford Explorer northbound on I-5 at around 2 a.m. near Tumwater Boulevard when she struck a barrier on the side of the road. The impact caused the vehicle to roll, and Fisk was reportedly thrown from her vehicle. WSP officials say she was not wearing a seat belt and died at the scene of the crash.
“This is a survivable collision and a tragic reminder of what can happen when you don’t wear a seat belt,” says WSP Trooper Guy Gill.
There have been nine fatalities in Thurston and Pierce Counties involving motorists not wearing seat belts, Gill says. There have been more than 6,000 seat belt violation citations in those counties in 2012 as well.
