One driver was airlifted to Seattle and another was transported to St. Elizabeth Hospital, the result of a two-car crash Wednesday morning in Enumclaw.

Multiple calls were received by the Enumclaw Police Department communications center at 6:58 a.m. Callers reported two vehicles had collided on Griffin Avenue near Fell Street.

Both police and fire personnel responded and quickly closed both lanes of busy Griffin Avenue between Fell and Lafromboise streets.

One of the drivers was trapped in his vehicle and members of the Enumclaw Fire Department extricated him. He was transported to an awaiting airlift helicopter and flown to Harborview Medical Center with serious injuries.

The driver of the other vehicle was transported by ground ambulance to St. Elizabeth in Enumclaw with non-life threatening injuries.

The cause of the collision is under investigation.
