A wrong-way driver was killed Monday morning after crashing into a U.S. Postal Service truck on state Route 520 in Redmond.
Washington State Patrol troopers were first alerted to the wrong-way driver when they were heading east in the westbound lanes of SR-520 near Interstate 405. Shortly after that, before 4 a.m., a 911 call was made to report the crash with the USPS truck near West Lake Sammamish Parkway, Trooper Rick Johnson said over the phone.
The wrong-way driver, in a Subaru hatchback, was killed in the crash and pronounced dead at the scene. The USPS truck driver suffered non-life threatening injuries.
