Two people were taken to area hospitals and one person treated at the scene following a rollover accident Monday afternoon inside Mount Rainier National Park on State Route 410.
Sometime around 2 p.m., a Jeep was headed westbound on SR 410 at milepost 59 and another sedan headed eastbound when one of the vehicles crossed the center line, said park ranger Geoff Walker.
The impact caused the Jeep to roll over. There were three people in each vehicle and no injuries to those who were in the sedan. A woman in the Jeep was airlifted to Tacoma Genera, an 8-year-old child was taken to Mary Bridge Children's Hospital, and the third person was treated and released at the scene.
As of Friday, it remained unclear who caused the accident, Walker said today.
The road was never closed as responders tried to keep at least one lane open at all times as crews worked to clear the accident. However, "there was so much westbound traffic on that Labor Day Monday that the line was a few miles long for sure," he said.
The Greenwater Fire Department, Buckley Fire responders and the Washington State Patrol also assisted in the response.
