Herald staff

Authorities have identified two of the three people killed in a head-on collision Sunday on Highway 203 south of Monroe.

Brian Samuel Mutt, 19, of Monroe was the driver of a 1991 Ford pickup. He died at the scene, the Snohomish County Medical Examiner’s Office said Monday.

A passenger, Karri Ann Wilson, 18, of Lynnwood, was taken by helicopter to Harborview Medical Center in Seattle. She died at the hospital, according to reports from the Washington State Patrol and the King County Medical Examiner’s Office.

The third person, a 6-year-old boy from Billings, Mont., was a passenger in a second pickup involved in the collision. The Snohomish County Medical Examiner’s Office did not release his name because relatives have not been notified.

Three others were injured in the crash.

Larry J. Brown, 38, the driver of a 1998 Chevrolet pickup, remained in critical condition at Harborview, a spokeswoman said. Peggy Brown, also 38, was in satisfactory condition there. Both are from Billings.

A second passenger in the Ford pickup, Joseph R. Knuckey, 18, of Monroe, was in serious condition.

All of the injured were airlifted to Harborview.

The crash, near Cherry Valley Road just north of the King County line, resulted in the highway being closed for six hours after the 3:05 p.m. accident.

According to the patrol’s report, the Mutt pickup had been traveling north on the highway and the Brown vehicle south. The report said Mutt’s truck attempted to pass another vehicle, and the collision occurred in the southbound lane.
