TACOMA, Wash. (AP) - A Tacoma man was killed after his car was sheared in half in a wreck on Schuster Parkway in Tacoma.

The News Tribune reports (https://bit.ly/2hUtnoc ) the crash happened at about 7 p.m. Friday.

England says speed was likely a factor. He says he couldn’t remember a crash like that.
