Semi-Truck Driver Injured in Fatal Crash on I-5

Kent, WA (July 3, 2022) On Thursday, a 51-year-old Tacoma man died in a 3-vehicle crash on Interstate 5.

Moreover, WSP Troopers pronounced the Tacoma driver dead at the scene, while the 2nd semi-truck driver sustained minor injuries.

Afterward, the fatal crash on I-5 caused a 3-hour blockage. Both semi-trucks were able on I-5’s right shoulder. Meanwhile, the Ford wreckage was blocking the first 2 lanes.

Troopers are investigating the collision and have ruled out impairment as a factor in the crash.
