The accident happened approximately 1:45 a.m. when the Kent woman drove onto the northbound state Route 167 ramp at South 277th Street. She hit the other car in the HOV lane.
Troopers do not know whether drugs or alcohol contributed to the accident and it is still under investigation.
According to State Patrol, a third vehicle was driving behind the Honda and ended up hitting the right side of the Mazda. The Seattle residents in that car, two men ages 40 and 42, did not suffer serious injuries.
The three deceased victims were pulled from their cars by fire crews from Valley Regional Fire. Two died at the scene and another died after being rushed to Harborview Medical Center.
