LYNDEN - Four people were hurt in a crash at a red light Monday afternoon, Aug. 5, north of Lynden.
Two eastbound cars, a Chevy Avalanche and a Mazda Protégé, had stopped on Badger Road at the intersection with Guide Meridian at 12:04 p.m. A Chevy Cavalier rear-ended the Protégé, pushing it into the Avalanche, said Washington State Patrol Trooper Mark Francis.
The driver of the Cavalier, Judi Spence, 66, of Blaine, suffered a leg injury that needed immediate medical treatment at St. Joseph hospital.
All three people in the Protégé - Janice Butler, 58, of Lynden, and both of her parents - were treated at the hospital for cuts, bruises and pain in their backs and necks, according to the state patrol.
The Avalanche driver declined medical aid.
The cause of the crash remained under investigation Monday. Francis noted that Spence showed no obvious signs of intoxication.
The area was blocked to traffic while first-responders handled the scene. It's about 2 1/2 miles south of a border crossing with Canada.
