One person was killed and two others suffered injuries in a wrong way interstate crash on Insterstate 5 near Marysville this week. According to the Washington State Patrol, troopers began to receive reports of a driver going northbound on I-5 south around five in the morning, but police were unable to locate or stop the car before it crashed head-on into a pickup truck with the right-of-way and then struck another car

The driver of the wrong-way vehicle, a 43-year-old Everett resident, was pronounced dead at the scene of the accident, while the driver of the pickup truck and the driver of the third vehicle were both transported to the hospital with non-life-threatening injuries.

It is unclear why the man was driving the wrong way down the interstate and the fatal Washington car accident is still under investigation. Most wrong way interstate accidents involve drivers under the influence of drugs or alcohol, elderly drivers, poor weather conditions, or confused drivers.
