Driver charged with leaving scene of fatal crash

An Auburn man, 22, was arrested today after he allegedly fled the scene of a four-vehicle collision. A 50-year-old woman was killed in the collision, and at least five other people were injured in the auto accident.

The man was driving on A Street Southeast in Auburn when he was involved in a verbal exchange with the male passenger in another car in the next lane. The two cars collided, and the second car veered into the northbound lane into oncoming traffic, colliding with a third car and a pickup.

The woman, 50, who was driving the third car, died at the scene of the Washington Car Accident, said Scott Near, spokesman for the Auburn Police Department. The elderly man who was driving the pickup was unharmed.

According to Near, the driver of the second car and all four passengers, including three children who were in the back seat, were sent to nearby hospitals and are in satisfactory condition.

The 22 year old driver of the first car was identified by a passenger in the second car.
