A two-car crash hurt seven people on Spirit Lake Highway near Mount St. Helens, Washington, on afternoon Saturday.

According to an accident memo provided by the Washington State Patrol, Vancouver resident Emily N. Ronda, 19, was driving a 1996 Honda Accord westbound near milepost 35 when she lost control of the vehicle in the snow and smashed head into a 2004 Chevy Suburban driven by Deell L. Younker, 37, of Silverlake.

In the Suburban, there were also 34-year-old Anna L. Sperling of Mountlake Terrace and four children — a 9-month-old girl and three boys, ages 6, 7, and 13 inside the car whose names were not released by the officials.

All seven people were wearing seatbelts but experienced injuries and were admitted to St. John Medical Center in Longview. Younker and Sperling were treated and released. Without names, the hospital could not provide details about the children. Ronda was listed in satisfactory condition as of Saturday night.

The state patrol found Ronda was driving really fast for the snowy conditions on the road, also known as state Highway 504. The state patrol is investigating charges, but have said that drugs and alcohol were not a factor in the accident.
