Four people were hurt in a crash during a test drive in Northwest Washington, according to KOMO.

Everett police said a 42-year-old woman was "driving recklessly" while on a test drive of a Hyundai Elantra Tuesday afternoon (February 2). A 38-year-old dealership employee was with her, they added.

The woman reportedly sped north on SE Everett Mall Way and rear-ended a pickup truck near 3rd Avenue SE. "The impact sent the truck across the street, through a utility pole and into a parking lot where it rolled over onto its side. A third, unoccupied parked car at the nearby business was damaged by the falling pole," reporters said.

Police said the woman and employee in the Elantra were rushed to the hospital. Their injuries were described as "serious and potentially life-threatening," according to Aron Snell with Everett police.

KOMO said the 54-year-old driver of the pickup and his 10-year-old daughter riding with him were treated at the scene for minor injuries.

Earlier this week, police said man was taking a car on a test drive until he crashed the vehicle into a home in Pasco.
