Edmonds police said that they are waiting for the results of toxicology tests before making a decision on whether charges will be filed in the case of a car crash that seriously injured an Edmonds woman after she was pinned between two parked cars on 5th Avenue South Sept. 10.
“We are awaiting toxicology results from the state crime lab. Given their backlog, that could take six to eight weeks,” said Edmonds police spokesman Sgt. Shane Hawley. “Once those results come back, we will examine the case in its entirety and make a determination what, if any, charges are warranted.”
The victim, 65-year-old Ginny Mayer of Edmonds, is recovering from fractures to her pelvis, a broken tibia and both femurs. “The good news is the doctors are saying I should be able to walk again in around six months,” Mayer told My Edmonds News readers in a comment posted to the website Sept. 16.
The driver of the car was a 69-year-old woman from Edmonds.
Mayer was caught between two parked cars near Girardi’s restaurant around 3 p.m. Sept. 10, when the driver — headed southbound on 5th Avenue South — hit the vehicle that ended up rear-ending the other vehicle.
