A Blaine woman died this week after sustaining injuries in a car wreck near the Lummi reservation.

Lillian Moir, 75, was riding in the passenger seat of a Volvo S40, heading east on Slater Road near Haxton Way on November 13. A Subaru turned on to Slater Road and collided with the Volvo head on at around 1:15 p.m.

Paramedics and Washington State Patrol (WSP) troopers arrived at the scene shortly afterwards. Moir told the first responders she was experiencing chest pains, and was transported to PeaceHealth St. Joseph Medical Center in Bellingham. She died shortly after arrival.

Shannon Parrish, 44, of Burlington, was driving the Volvo. She sustained an arm injury and was taken to the hospital, but her injuries were not considered life threatening. Bellingham resident Olivia Hamilton, 19, was driving the Subaru. She was not injured in the crash. All of the people involved in the crash were wearing seatbelts.

WSP spokesman Mark Francis said charges are pending, but there is no reason to suspect drugs or alcohol were involved in the crash.
