The motor vehicle accident occurred around 1am on Stewart Road near Valentine Avenue in Pacific. Steward runs northeast and intersects State Route 167 between Algona and Sumner.
The driver of the Toyota was pronounced dead at the accident scene.
The driver of the Ford was taken to Auburn Regional medical center with minor injuries and then was arrested for investigation of Vehicular Homicide. Washington vehicle code RCW 46.61.520 states that a person can be charged with Vehicular Homicide if someone dies in a car accident and the driver was driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs, driving recklessly or driving without regard to the safety of others.
