A woman was killed after a man operating a forklift caused a multivehicle crash at Aurora Avenue North and North 96th Street in Seattle, according to Seattle police.

All northbound and southbound lanes were blocked around 3:30 p.m. as first responders helped people out of the vehicles. The collision involved the forklift, an SUV and a landscape truck.

The driver of the forklift apparently entered Aurora Avenue from the west side of the street and continued eastbound until he collided with the southbound SUV, causing the SUV to collide with the northbound landscape truck, according to police.

The woman, about 25, was taken to Harborview in critical condition. She later died from her injuries at the hospital.

Two other people were injured and treated at Harborview.

The man driving the forklift was arrested at the scene and did not need treatment at a hospital. Officers suspected he was under the influence and had him evaluated by a drug recognition expert.

Police will book the suspect into the King County Jail for investigation of vehicular homicide. Traffic Collision Investigation Squad detectives were investigating the incident.
