A 64-year-old woman from Black Diamond was airlifted to Harborview with serious injuries following a head-on collision at about 1 a.m. Thursday, May 19, on state Route 169 near 383rd Street outside of  Enumclaw.

According to a release from the state patrol, a white Chevrolet Tahoe driven by a 41-year-old Seattle woman was traveling north on SR 169 when it crossed over the centerline.
