The woman was identified by police as a 32-year-old from Olympia. A fifty-five-year-old man from Oakville died at the scene.

According to the State Patrol, after striking the guard rails on each side of the road, the woman’s SUV hit the man’s car head-on. The vehicles were going in opposite directions.

The woman apparently suffered bruises and was taken by ambulance to Providence St. Peter Hospital in Olympia. There she was treated and released. She was then booked into jail. The woman was wearing a seatbelt, but the man who died was not, according to the State Patrol.
