For the second day in a row, troopers said a suspected DUI driver caused a deadly crash and shut down part of a major highway in WA state.

Troopers are still piecing together what happened next, but said a third vehicle became involved in the crash.

In all, two people died. Two people were seriously injured, including the suspected DUI driver.

A half-mile stretch of U.S. 101 is expected to be closed for several hours during the investigation.

Yesterday, all lanes of I5 southbound at Northgate were closed for hours after troopers said an “impaired” driver caused a crash that left one person dead.
