WHATCOM ­— Two women were taken to Harborview Medical Center in Seattle from a two-car crash on southbound Interstate 5 in Bellingham the evening of Saturday, July 6.

The Washington State Patrol reported that Shannon Hofer, 23, was driving a 2008 Volkswagen Jetta north in the southbound lanes of the freeway at about 11:27 p.m., and also that alcohol or drugs are considered to be a factor in the crash.

Both drivers, who were wearing seatbelts, were taken to Harborview, and both vehicles were considered totalled, the patrol said.
