Two people were injured in a crash Tuesday night after a 48-year-old Spanaway man abruptly made a U-turn on state Route 410 and struck another vehicle head-on in Bonney Lake, according to the Washington State Patrol.
The collision occurred about 9 p.m. in the 24400 block of SR 410. Troopers said drugs or alcohol likely played a role in the accident.
The Spanaway man was driving a 2006 Chevrolet Silverado pickup truck west on SR 410 when he suddenly made a U-turn as he approached 234th Avenue East and began driving east in the westbound lanes. He struck a 1989 Mazda 929 driven by a 23-year-old Buckley woman.
Both drivers were taken to Tacoma General Hospital. Their conditions were not immediately known.
