KIRKLAND, Wash. -- One person has died after a van struck a vehicle on northbound I-405, fled the scene by driving onto the 128th Street ramp, then struck a wall that caused the van to catch fire, State Patrol said.

According to Trooper Rick Johnson, the crash happened at about 10:30 a.m. in Kirkland. The driver of the van fled northbound I-405 after rear-ending a car, then took the 128th Street ramp and drove through an intersection before crashing into a wall.

The van caught fire after crashing into the wall, and the driver of the van was pronounced dead at the scene.

There were no others injured in either crash, though debris from the van hitting the wall fell onto I-405 and damaged another car.

The ramps from 405 onto 128th Street were closed in both directions for several hours after the crash. They were reopened as of 3:47 p.m., officials said on Twitter.
