WSP Detective Requests Witnesses for Car vs. Semi Collision on I-90

WSP Detectives are working hard to piece together the events that led up to a devastating collision. At 10:17 this morning, on Interstate 90 east of High Point in King County, an 18 year old female suffered life threatening injuries when her red Toyota Camry collided with a semi-truck and trailer.

Some reports suggest another vehicle in the area moved into the lane of the Toyota's travel, causing the driver to lose control.

Anyone who may have witnessed the collision is urged to call Detective Russ Haake at 425-401-7717.

"Even with our beautiful weather, dangers on our roadway still exist. We ask that drivers pay attention to their surroundings", said Lieutenant Ken Noland, District 2 (King County) Acting Commander. "Keep a safe following distance between vehicles and always be prepared for the unexpected."
