Medical problem causes I-90 crash

A Western Washington woman was hospitalized Saturday morning after she suffered a medical issue while driving on Interstate 90 and crashed her car.

Jenny J. Rasmussen, 54, of Enumclaw, was westbound on I-90 about 15 miles from Medical Lake at about 10:45 a.m. when she drifted off the road to the right, according to the Washington State Patrol. Her car went through a fence and sideswiped a tree before coming to a stop about 75 feet from the freeway.

The 63-year-old passenger in Rasmussen’s car was not injured.
