Fatal Collission In Snoqualmie Construction Zone

I blogged yesterday about the construction and delays on I-90 at Snoqualmie Pass. Well today unfortunately I'm blogging about a double fatal collission that happened in that construction zone. An Idaho couple died when their car was crushed between two semi-trucks as traffic slowed going through the construction area yesterday.

The Washington State Patrol says two cars and three trucks were involved in the chain-reaction crash in the early afternoon that killed the Boise couple and injured five other people.

The patrol says inattention on the part of one truck driver caused the crash. It backed up traffic for seven miles.
