A mom and tiny baby were traveling east on NE 205th between 5th and 6th NE about 6am Tuesday morning when their van either collided with or swerved to avoid a collision with another vehicle.

The van rolled and ended up on its side with the front end pushed into the hillside.

Shoreline Police, State Troopers, and Snohomish Fire District #1 and Medics responded to the scene. State Patrol led the investigation while Shoreline handled traffic and stood by to help if needed.

Firefighters helped the mother to exit the vehicle through the right rear door, but had to break the back window to get access to the baby, who was less than six months old.

Snohomish Fire District #1 medics transported the patients to Swedish Edmonds. Their condition is unknown.
