SEDRO-WOOLLEY, Wash. (AP) - The Washington State Patrol says three people were killed and two injured in a collision on Highway 20 near Sedro-Wooley.

Trooper Mark Francis tells the Skagit Valley Herald (https://bit.ly/1kxklHN ) there were four people in one car. A 23-year-old Sedro-Woolley woman, Nicole A. Washington, and a 21-year-old Bellingham woman both died at the scene. A19-year-old Mount Vernon man and another man were airlifted to Harborview Medical Center in Seattle.

One person in the other car, 65-year-old Frederick A. Brand of Concrete, died on the way to a Sedro-Woolley hospital.

Francis says speed and possibly alcohol were factors in the crash at 5:10 a.m. Friday.

The Transportation Department detoured traffic to South Skagit Highway until Highway 20 reopened at 10:45 a.m.
