State Patrol: 1 dead in I-5 wrong-way crashFebruary 28, 2014 @ 8:26 pm (Updated: 6:49 pm - 3/1/14 )
VANCOUVER, Wash. (AP) - The Washington State Patrol says an Interstate 5 crash involving a wrong-way driver has killed a 6-year-old boy and left three other people hospitalized.
The Columbian reports that an 84-year-old man driving south in northbound lanes Friday afternoon collided head-on with a car driven by a La Center, Wash., woman who had two children with her. The crash took place just north of Vancouver.
The patrol identified the southbound driver as Gage Musgrave of Vancouver. The 6-year-old boy was riding in a car driven by 32-year-old Ericka Gorremans. A 10-year-old boy in that car has been flown to a Portland hospital. Both drivers were also hospitalized.
Trooper Will Finn says the elderly driver was not immediately able to tell troopers what led up to the collision.
The State Patrol says a third vehicle was destroyed but its driver was unhurt.
