Update: 21-Year-Old Dies in 10-Car Collision on I-82
(Granger, WA) -- Washington State Patrol troopers are still investigating a 10-car accident that occurred on I-82 in Granger last Wednesday. KONA reported it as a car crash and traffic delay early that morning, but that collision also claimed the life of a 21 year old man. Authorities believe icy road conditions on the Granger overpass contributed to the crash and do not suspect any drugs or alcohol were involved. Two other individuals involved in the pileup were taken to a local hospital to be treated for non-life-threatening injuries.
After troopers started dealing with the 10-car crash in the eastbound lanes, authorities witnessed two separate collisions on the corresponding overpass on I-82 westbound. Fortunately, no one was hurt in either of those collisions.
