A 22-year-old Federal Way man died Saturday and his pregnant passenger was hospitalized with serious injuries after the Mercedes the man was driving made an illegal pass on Highway 2, colliding with an oncoming truck, according to the Washington State Patrol.

At about 4:15 p.m. the car driven by Denis Sokolik crossed  double-yellow lines on a curve, nine miles east of Gold Bar and collided with a maroon pickup driven by a 64-year-old East Wenatchee man, the Patrol said.

The truck jumped the guard rail and landed in a ditch, injuring the driver and two passengers – 54 and 70 – who were also from East Wenatchee. The three men were transported to Harborview Medical Center.

The highway was blocked for nearly four hours.
