Driver with lapdog dies in crash near Gig Harbor

The Associated Press

GIG HARBOR — The Washington State Patrol says a woman driving with a Chihuahua in her lap crossed into oncoming traffic and collided with another car Wednesday on Highway 302 near Gig Harbor.

Trooper Guy Gill says driving with the dog in her lap may have been a factor in the crash that killed the woman and the dog.

Another woman and her 7-year-old daughter in the other car were injured and taken to a hospital. Gill says the girl was reported in stable condition.
