According to the Kittitas County Sheriff's Office, on Friday, December 30, 2016, at around 5:16pm, Deputies responded with personnel from Kittitas County Search and Rescue, Kittitas County Fire District 6, and Hospital District 2 Paramedics, to reports of a snowmobile accident about 2 miles northeast of Ronald in an off trail area.

A 46 year old Lake Forest Park resident, Marlecia Smallman, was involved in a single vehicle snowmobile accident and was unconscious and pinned under her snowmobile.

Rescue crews accessed the patient via snow rescue vehicles and extricated her. Marlecia was transported back to Ronald on a rescue vehicle and then by ambulance to North Bend, where she was airlifted to Harborview Medical Center in Seattle with life threatening injuries.

The investigation is ongoing however, alcohol was not involved.

Poor job on reporting, she was not pinned nor injured by the snowmobile.
That lack of consideration and being insensitive by listing the name is morally wrong. Shoreline News grade F-. Next time try using reporting skills rather than just regurgitating off a wire. Maybe an apology and a recant and/or correction is in order. Feel free to contact me if you wish.

The information came from a press release from the Kittitas Sheriff's Office. They did not provide any other information. Some agencies release names, some don't. If they do, I publish them - as did all the other media that picked up the story. If you have better information, please contact me at Editor@ShorelineAreaNews.com
