CHELAN — An SUV driver drove through a shave-ice customer patio and struck and injured three bystanders Thursday night in Chelan's Lakeside neighborhood, before crashing into a set of parked cars.
The adult female driver allegedly turned into the business driveway at West Woodin Avenue and East Center Street about 6:25 p.m., and drove through the group of pedestrians outside the Tropical Sno stand. Her vehicle then went over a small embankment on the Center Street side of the lot and struck two parked vehicles there before coming to rest on its roof.
Chelan County sheriff's deputies said the driver and pedestrians were treated at Lake Chelan Hospital, with one victim airlifted to Harborview Medical Center in Seattle for a head injury. The SUV and one other vehicle were totaled in the accident.
The cause of the accident was still under investigation Friday, and no citations were issued.
