A driver reportedly crossed into the opposite lanes of Highway 203, causing a three-car collision.

MONROE — A man suffered potentially life-threatening injuries after he crashed head-on into another car Thursday afternoon on Highway 203 near Cherry Valley, according to the Washington State Patrol.

The driver was headed northbound shortly before 4 p.m. when he crossed into the southbound lane in the 23100 block of Highway 203, trooper Heather Axtman said. He hit one vehicle, causing minor damage and non-serious injuries to two men, and then collided head-on with a second.

A person in the second car was transported to a hospital in Monroe with injuries that were serious, but not believed to be life-threatening, Axtman said.

The man suspected of causing the crash had to be cut out of his car. He was taken to Providence Regional Medical Center Everett.

All lanes of the highway were shut down Thursday evening as troopers investigated the crash.
