KENMORE, Wash. – Westbound State Route 522 was expected to be closed several hours Monday afternoon after a four-vehicle collision.

The accident happened before 11 a.m. in the 7500 block of the highway, which is also known as NE Bothell Way.

A King County Sheriff’s Office spokesperson said a Volvo traveling eastbound that was attempting to make a left turn appears to have entered the westbound lanes, leading to a collision involving three oncoming vehicles.

The driver of the Volvo was taken to Harborview Medical Center in critical condition. The driver of a pickup was also taken to the hospital with non life-threatening injuries.

Westbound traffic at the scene was expected to be shut down for 3-to-4 hours.
