The accident occurred on the ramp between northbound I-5 and eastbound State Route 520 at about 10 a.m., when a 44-year-old woman from Seattle lost control of her vehicle and it went off the side of the roadway.
The vehicle overturned in the grassy area, before landing in one of the westbound lanes of SR-520.
The driver was ejected in the process. She was taken to the hospital, where she later succumbed to her injuries.
No other injuries were reported in the accident.
Troopers advised drivers to expect lengthy road closures and traffic delays in the area as they worked the crash.
