A Bellingham woman was seriously injured in a rollover crash in north Skagit County on Thursday night, said Trooper Heather Axtman with the Washington State Patrol.

Michele R. Smith, 45, was driving southbound on Interstate 5 near Bow Hill Road just before 11 p.m. when her 1999 Daewoo Leganza sedan came off the right side of the road and rolled, landing on its top, Axtman said Friday morning.

Smith was taken to Skagit Valley Hospital before being flown to Harborview Medical Center in Seattle. Susan Gregg, a hospital spokeswoman, on Friday said Smith was in intensive care with serious injuries.

Smith was wearing a seatbelt, Axtman said.

Because the crash is still under investigation, it’s unclear whether alcohol or drugs were involved.
