The wreck occurred around 5 a.m. on southbound Interstate 5 near South 288th Street, according to the Washington State Patrol. Witnesses reported that the car, a 1998 Toyota Camry, was being driven normally at first. “All of a sudden it started to drift very casually onto the left shoulder,” State Patrol spokesman Trooper Nick King said.
The vehicle traveled 50 feet off the roadway before hitting a jersey barrier. She was pronounced dead at the scene.
Terribly sad. The game of basketball is meaningless when it comes to family. Our thoughts and prayers are with Isaiah and his family.
