Driver killed in Bellevue Highway 520 head-on accident

Jillian Gordon, 22, of Woodinville was killed in a head-on collision with a semi-truck on State Route 520 in Bellevue near 108th reports The Washington State Patrol (WSP).

According to the WSP, the motor vehicle accident occurred around 4:00am on February 22 when a Mitsubishi Gallant driven by Gordon ran into a semi-truck after being involved in at least one other collision.

The WSP is seeking anyone with knowledge of the accident to contact Detective Sergeant Jerry Cooper (360) 805-1192 or Detective Greg Wilcoxson (360) 805-1195 to aide in their investigation.

It appears that Gordon struck a barrier on westbound 520 near 92nd Avenue Northeast and stopped her vehicle near a construction zone when her vehicle was struck by a Cedar Grove composting truck which spun her car around. She then drove the wrong way on 520 without her lights and collided head-on with a semi-truck near 108th.

Head-On Collisions
Head-On collisions are some of the most devastating accidents and they are even more catastrophic when the vehicles are mismatched as in this case.
