(SKAGIT COUNTY, WA.) -- As a driver these days you have to be so observant, so watchful, so very careful every moment behind that wheel or somebody dies.

Traveling down the road at just 40 or 50 mph in a 4,000 pound car, you take your gaze off that pavement for just a second or two to pop that new CD in the player, look down for a sec to finish that text to your buddy or finish putting that lipstick on, take your eyes off what's up ahead for any reason just for a moment...and somebody dies or ends up a cripple for life.

In rural Skagit County Monday, all it took was a few seconds of an obstructed view of what was ahead and a woman died.

It happened just before 6:00 pm during the going home commute at the end of the work day at the intersection of the Farm-To-Market Road and Josh Wilson Road, just northwest of the Skagit Regional Airport.

The state patrol says a 1997 red Toyota 4-Runner was stopped at a stop sign westbound on Josh Wilson Road. There were other vehicles in the dedicated right hand turn lane from the Farm-To-Market Road that were obstructing the view of that Toyota that was just sitting there stopped, waiting to leave the stop sign and move through the intersection to the other side of the Farm-To-Market and continue the drive westbound on the Josh Wilson Road.

The time came when the Toyota driver thought it was safe, evidently, to cross the road so she "accelerated from the stop sign" said the patrol report and in an instant her car was smashed into by a 2001 Maroon Dodge Ram Pickup.

The driver of the pickup apparently didn't see the Toyota because of the obstructed view the other cars in the right hand turn lane had caused.

Killed by the impact was the driver of the Toyota identified as 60-year old Karen Wolf of Mount Vernon, Washington. She was wearing a seatbelt and was deceased at the scene.

The driver of the Dodge pickup, a 28-year old man from Sedro Woolley, Washington was not injured, according to the patrol report which says the incident is still under investigation and as of Monday evening it had not been determined if any charges would be filed as a result of the fatal collision.
