A crash that left two vehicles flipped over north of Lynden sounded worse on the police scanner than it turned out to be.

Two people were trapped in the wreckage while they waited for firefighters to arrive. They managed to crawl out a few minutes later, escaping with what were described, over the scanner, as minor injuries.
One person was transported by ambulance on basic life support to St. Joseph hospital.
Didn’t hear back immediately from State Patrol Trooper Keith Leary, who would have details about the crash, but I’ll update this post later if he gives me a call.
