At just after 3 a.m. Monday morning, three vehicles were involved in a collision near westbound SR 18 and the Weyerhaeuser campus.

Upon investigation, Washington State patrol learned the second and third cars were traveling west when a car, driven by a 27-year-old male of Federal Way, crossed over into the westbound lane striking the second car. Both vehicles rolled over and struck the third. The first vehicle came to a stop upside down, while the second landed on its side.

Washington State Patrol are investigating the Federal Way driver for driving under the influence. He was booked into King County Jail for vehicular assault and driving under the influence.

The driver of the second vehicle was a 57-year-old woman. She was injured in the crash and was transported to West Valley Medical Center. The man in the third vehicle, a 36-year-old male, was not injured and was able to drive away from the scene of the crash.

The roadway was closed for four hours and 31 minutes.
