AUBURN, Wash. (AP) - A wrong-way driver collided with two cars and was killed in a crash on State Route 18 in Auburn.

KCPQ-TV reports (https://bit.ly/1Hc6uo1 ) that the accident happened overnight Thursday and closed the road for about four hours at the Green River Bridge.

The Washington State Patrol says a 60-year-old Montana woman drove east in the westbound lanes and hit a car. She kept going until she hit a second car on the highway. That driver was injured and taken to St. Francis Hospital.

The wrong-way driver died at the scene.

Troopers say they don’t believe drugs or alcohol were a factor in the crash. The investigation is ongoing. The driver’s identity was not immediately released.
