A 51-year-old woman was killed in a head-on collision Friday night on state Route 99, the Washington State Patrol said.

KIRO-TV reported the crash occurred in northbound lanes south of 14th Avenue South in Seattle.

The victim’s vehicle, a 2004 Chevrolet Colorado pickup, was traveling north on SR 99 when a 2000 Dodge Caravan was traveling southbound on West Marginal Place South, according to state patrol.

The Dodge left the roadway, drove through a fence and went southbound in the northbound lanes. The two vehicles collided head-on.

Two other passengers in the pickup were injured and transported to Harborview Medical Center. Their conditions were unknown Saturday night.

The driver of the Dodge, a 44-year-old woman, was hurt and taken to Harborview Medical Center.

Washington State Patrol spokeswoman Julie Judson said the driver’s injuries were unknown Saturday night, but they are not considered to be life-threatening.

KIRO-TV reported it is unknown if drugs or alcohol were involved. Authorities continue to investigate the crash.
