Washington State Patrol I-90 Fatality Collision Statement

On November 5th  at approximately 530 pm on westbound I90, an accident caused two car fires and unfortunately killed one motorist.

According to the Washington State Patrol (WSP), vehicle one, a 2019 Chevy Corvette, was traveling at a high rate of speed in lane 3 when it approached a slower-moving vehicle.

The Corvette made a lane change into lane two to pass the vehicle and then made another lane change back into lane three when it lost control, entered the median and struck a concrete abutment.

The car burst into flames and came to rest just west of the east fork of the Issaquah Creek. The driver was killed.

Vehicle two, a 2017 Nissan Pathfinder, was traveling directly behind the Corvette and struck burning debris on the roadway. The driver then pulled to the right shoulder just west of the collision and came to a stop.

Burning debris was lodged under the Pathfinder, which caused the car to catch fire and become fully engulfed.

The roadway was closed for approximately 3 hours. The Corvette’s drivers name has not been released pending next of kin notification
