AUBURN, WA — A 51-year-old woman died Thursday after being injured in a single-vehicle accident on state Route 18 eastbound in Auburn, according to KIRO 7 News.
Washington State Patrol said the woman was driving eastbound on SR-18 near the state Route 167 merge when she lost control of her vehicle and struck a right-side barrier, causing the vehicle to veer across the road and strike the left-side barrier.
She was transported by airlift to Seattle’s Harborview Medical Center, where she died from her injuries.
