Wrong-way driver causes deadly, fiery crash in Pacific

PACIFIC, Wash. (AP) — Two people were killed in a wrong-way crash that involved seven vehicles along State Route 167 early Wednesday morning in Pacific, Washington, east of Tacoma. Police received initial reports of a pickup truck heading south in the northbound lanes of SR-167 in Renton. The truck made it 12 miles until it collided with a motorcycle in Pacific. The pickup then struck a double dump truck and video from nearby traffic cameras showed flames shooting out of the vehicles. Medics and police raced to the scene to find the wrong-way driver and the motorcycle rider dead at the scene, but the dump truck driver escaped injury.
