OLYMPIA, Wash. -- Two people died overnight after a driver drove the wrong way on I-5 South and crashed into a car and a semi in Thurston County.

WSP Trooper Johnna Batiste said it happened about 12:05 a.m. near U.S. Highway 12 and involved two vehicles and a semi truck.

Prani Sisopha, 43-year-old Olympia woman, was driving north on I-5 South and crashed into another car, causing a semi to crash into debris from the other two vehicles. Sisopha was killed, along with her passenger, 34-year-old Travis Schuettke from Tumwater.

The interstate remained closed until 5:30 a.m., reopening just ahead of Thursday morning's commute.
