The two men were seriously injured and later succumbed to their injuries at St. Joseph Medical Center
Tacoma, Wash. – Authorities are investigating a wrong-way traffic collision that claimed the lives of two men in Tacoma last month, according to Washington State Patrol.
The deadly crash happened at about 3:50 a.m. Sunday, October 29 on Interstate 705 near State Route 509.
Reportedly, the crash was caused by a wrong-way driver who was traveling southbound in the northbound lanes of I-705, just south of Highway 509. The wrong-way driver collided head-on with an oncoming vehicle.
Both drivers were seriously injured and were taken to St. Joseph Medical Center where they later died.
According to the Washington State Patrol, drugs or alcohol may have played a role in the crash.
The incident remains under investigation.
Driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs is a major cause of car accidents. Impaired driving is dangerous and exposes the impaired driver and other road users to the risk of being injured or killed in a traffic collision. An impaired driver is likely to cause a crash because the use of alcohol and drugs impairs vision, judgment, and reaction time.
