MALTBY, Wash. — A man and a woman were killed and two other people, including a child, were seriously injured in a two-car, head-on collision on State Route 522 east of Fales Road Monday afternoon.

The Washington State Patrol said that, according to witnesses, an eastbound Mitsubishi Eclipse drifted onto the right shoulder of the road, over-corrected, crossed the center line and struck a westbound Ford Fusion shortly after 3 p.m.

A woman who was a passenger in a Ford Fusion was killed immediately, the State Patrol said. The driver of that car, a man, died later at the hospital, the State Patrol said.

A man and a female child in a car seat in the Eclipse were seriously injured.

The injured were taken to Seattle’s Harborview Medical Center.

    Sounds like another avoidable loss of life had the person in the eclipse taken their operation of a motor vehicle serious and not allowed a distraction to cause this accident. Unless it was a medical situation like a stroke or heart attack this looks to be clearly preventable.

    May the God of Abraham, Issac and Jacob bring comfort to all those involved.

    Well instead of making SR522 and SR18 SAFE / less congested 4 lane divided highways from start to finish, the illustrious Christine Gregoire chose to build a fancy bridge and tunnel in Seattle instead. An we know how that's turning out.
