MONROE, Wash. — At least nine people were injured, six critically, in a five-car crash on State Route 2 in Monroe Monday night, the Washington State Patrol said.

The crash closed down the arterial highway for hours.

A State Patrol trooper said a car intending to take a left turn had to stop for oncoming traffic. The car behind the first vehicle stopped, but the third car swerved to avoid rear-ending the car in front of them, side-swiped the second car and hit the oncoming car head-on.

Another car behind the line of cars flipped and rolled.

    To our Governor,

    How many more lives must hwy 2 take before we act responsibly and improve this road to ensure the safety of our citizens? How about prioritizing the safety of our citizens in the budget. Isn't that the first and responsibility of government. How can we spend money widening lanes in King County to make commute time and congestion go down but can't find to reduce the number of lives lost and impacted by this dangerous road?

    Will you be derelict in your duty as your predecessor?
