The Washington State Patrol (WSP) said the collision happened just before 3 a.m.

While traveling southbound, the causing vehicle (#1) crossed the center median near Interurban, colliding head-on with a northbound vehicle (#2) in the northbound lane.

Vehicle #1 overturned into the east ditch, while vehicle #2 remained in northbound lane one.

The road closure lasted for 4 hours and 51 minutes.

The causing driver was in critical condition at Harborview, and the other driver was also transported to the hospital.
