According to a press release from the Washington State Patrol, 17-year-old Hunter Lake of Sedro-Woolley, had been traveling Westbound State Route 20 in a 1996 Toyota Pickup when he stopped to make a left turn onto Lyman Hamilton Highway. Troopers say, 29-year-old Danielle Allison of Sedro-Woolley, who had also been traveling Westbound State Route 20 in a 2007 Subaru Tribeca failed to stop and rear-ended Lake’s vehicle. The Subaru came to a stop in the Westbound Lane and the Toyota came to a stop blocking both lanes of travel.
