Three F.H. teens injured in mid-afternoon rollover

Three San Juan Island teens were taken to the medical center in Friday Harbor with non-life threatening following a single-car crash in mid-afternoon, Wednesday, on Turn Point Road.

According to the San Juan County Sheriff's Department, a newly licensed 16-year-old Friday Harbor girl and three passengers, 15-17 years in age, were involved in the rollover collision.

All four were wearing safety belts at the time, Sheriff Rob Nou said in a press release. The girls were not identified by name.

The four were westbound on Turn Point Road, near the intersection of Pinedora Lane, when the driver failed to negotiate a turn and flipped the Toyota 4Runner the four teens were traveling while trying to get the vehicle back on the roadway. Authorities believe that alcohol or other drugs did not play a role in the collision, which occured shortly before 2 p.m.

The crash remains under investigation; no charges have been filed at this time.
