Crash injures 2 on Mount Baker Highway

Posted on September 20, 2013 

BELLINGHAM -- A three-car crash on Mount Baker Highway sent two people to St. Joseph hospital in the late afternoon of Friday, Sept. 20.

A red Honda Accord and a beige Honda Accord stopped for a car turning left into a driveway in the 2100 block of the highway around 4:30 p.m. when an eastbound red Lexus RX 350 didn't slow down in time and slammed into the back of the beige Honda, pushing that car into the red Honda, said Washington State Patrol Trooper Timothy Dick. 

One woman in the Lexus, a passenger, and the driver of the beige Honda, David Hromyk, 22, of Maple Falls, needed to go to the hospital. Hromyk had neck pain but was going to be OK, said his brother, who showed up to pick up the damaged car. The trunk of the car, however, shrunk a few feet from the impact.

The woman in the Lexus appeared conscious and alert when EMTs loaded her into the back of an ambulance.

The driver of the Lexus, a Bellingham resident whose name had not been released an hour afterward, will be cited with failing to control the car's speed, Dick said.

Traffic could get through but was slow while troopers investigated.
