One dead in Kirkland car crash

One person died in a two-car collision on the 12000 block of Juanita Drive Northeast in Kirkland Tuesday night, according to the Kirkland Police Department.

Just before 9 p.m. a southbound vehicle crossed the center line and struck a northbound vehicle with four people inside, according to police spokesman Sgt. Rob Saloum. One person died in the northbound vehicle and three others had to be pulled from it by the Kirkland Fire Department.

Two of those pulled from the vehicle and the driver of the southbound vehicle were sent to Harborview Medical Center, Saloum said. One other was sent to EvergreenHealth hospital in Kirkland.

Saloum said witness reports and evidence gathered at the scene have prompted police to investigate whether the southbound driver was drunk.

He also said that the crash site on Juanita Drive Northeast, south of Holmes Point Drive, will remain closed for several more hours as the investigation continues.
