Police: Driver in double-fatality crash intended suicide

A head-on crash that killed two drivers in Pierce County Monday night may have been intentionally caused by one of the drivers committing suicide.

“He’d left a suicide note saying he was going to drive his car 120 mph into a pole,” Pierce County sheriff’s spokesman Ed Troyer told the News Tribune of Tacoma. “He got his car up to high speed to hit a pole and instead hit a truck, killing the other guy instantly.”

Troyer said deputies discovered the suicide note when they went to inform the family of the 19-year-old driver who crossed the highway’s center line  in his Ford Mustang.

Investigators say he was travelling at more than 100 mph when he collided with a Toyota Tundra driver by a 50-year-old man.

Both drivers were pronounced dead at the scene. Their names have not yet been released.
