A 19-year-old Seattle woman was killed in a fiery wrong-way crash on Interstate 5 in SeaTac at 11:26 p.m. Thursday, according to the Washington State Patrol.
The woman was driving north in the northbound lanes when a driver in a Jeep heading south in the north lanes hit her Ford Taurus head on and her vehicle was immediately engulfed in flames, according to the WSP.
The alleged wrong-way driver, 46 and a resident of Puyallup, was taken to Harborview Medical Center, where he died shortly after 2 a.m.
On Saturday, the State Patrol had not released the names of the deceased pending notification of next of kin.
Correction: An earlier version of this story had the two car models in this crash reversed. The young woman was driving the Ford Taurus; the alleged wrong-way driver was in the Jeep.
