According to the Washington State Patrol, the collision happened at milepost 54 around 4:05 PM.
Based on a report, a red passenger car tried to pass a commercial vehicle on the eastbound side of the highway. At that time, a westbound passenger car went to the right shoulder to avoid hitting the red passenger car head-on.
