A trooper said a stopped pickup that was rear-ended on Highway 203 was pushed into oncoming traffic.

MONROE — One person was killed and five others were injured in a high-speed, head on, three-car collision on Highway 203 Sunday afternoon.

The crash occurred about 2:45 p.m. just south of High Rock Road. A pickup truck was stopped preparing to make a left turn, but waiting for oncoming cars, said Washington State Patrol trooper Heather Axtman.

A car approaching the stopped pickup from behind failed to stop, hitting the pickup and pushing it into oncoming traffic, she said.

Two people in the pickup were transported to Providence Regional Medical Center Everett with severe injuries. The driver was pronounced dead at the hospital, said Heather Chadwick, a spokeswoman for Fire District 7. A third person involved in the collision was also treated at the Everett hospital.

One person was transported to Harborview Medical Center in Seattle, she said. Two others were taken to EvergreenHealth Monroe to be treated for minor injuries.
