1 dead, 2 wounded in multi-car crash in Midland

PIERCE COUNTY, Wash. -- One person was killed and two others wounded in a multiple car crash in the Midland region on Wednesday night.

Pierce County sheriff's Office said extreme speed combined with failure to obey a traffic light led to the fatal accident at 97th Street East and Portland Avenue East around 9 p.m.

An SUV carrying up to eight public ran through a stop light and collided into another car. The collision caused the SUV to spin up in the air and slam down on an Audi.

"He came flying down this highway nailed the red car, flipped up over the red car and then landed on her," said witness Jake Schley.

One person within the SUV was pronounced dead at the scene. The fatality has not been identified.

And two others - a passenger of the SUV and the driver of the Audi - were wounded. The extent of their injuries were not known.
