1 person killed, 3 injured in fiery 3-vehicle crash on I-405 in Bellevue

fatal car crash 09-12-13BELLEVUE — One person was killed and three were injured shortly before 10 p.m. Thursday in a fiery three-vehicle crash on southbound Interstate 405 near Main Street in Bellevue, the Washington State Patrol said. All southbound lanes of I-405 were blocked.

One vehicle in the crash rolled several times and caught fire, and the driver of the rolled vehicle was trapped in the car as it burst into flames. He died at the scene, the State Patrol said.

Three people in the other two vehicles were injured; the extent of their injuries was not immediately known.

State trooper Chris Webb said the cause of the accident may have been the vehicle that rolled. That vehicle was previously reported as traveling at a high rate of speed, Webb said. That vehicle may have struck the other two vehicles before rolling onto the left shoulder, he said.

Webb added that the accident is being investigated as vehicular homicide, and that another vehicle may have been involved.

Friday morning, Webb said the driver of the car that caused the crash was in the hospital under the guard of troopers and will be booked into jail on his release. The driver is suspected of being under the influence of methamphetamine.

    The speed people drive around at nowadays, does not surprise me a bit. NO sympathy for the dead one, BUT, feel very sorry for his/her family. Hope the other victims don't suffer permanent injury.

    JUST watched the REVISED news broadcast. Should've known better than to comment about the accident based on the "first" broadcast of the accident. Learned at 7:05 AM that the dead person was in the car that was slammed into and apparently not the one "flying" down the road. I DEEPLY, DEEPLY APOLOGIZE TO THE DECEASED PERSON'S FAMILY FOR MY "MISINFORMED" COMMENT FROM LAST NIGHT! And as for the person who slammed into the rear of the BMW (?) killing the individual inside; I COULD GO TO JAIL FOR POSTING WHAT I WOULD LIKE TO SAY, but you get the point!
