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.
