(Sequim) -- One person was killed and four other people were injured in a three-vehicle crash Monday morning on Highway 101 between Port Angeles and Sequim.
The accident happened about 8:30 a.m. near milepost 258.
State Trooper Russ Winger says 52-year-old Bryan Crawford of Port Angeles was declared dead at the scene.
Winger tells Newsradio KONP that a westbound 1991 Honda Accord driven by 22-year-old Kayla Walls of Cedar City, Utah was slowed to make a left-hand turn onto Cliff Robinson Lane.
The Accord was rear-ended by a Ford flatbed truck driven by 28-year-old Stewart Wyckoff of Poulsbo.
The impact pushed the flatbed across the centerline and into the eastbound ditch.
The Honda rotated into the eastbound lane striking a 2001 Ford F-150 pickup driven by Crawford.
Winger says Crawford attempted to take evasive action and his pickup truck rolled over.
Crawford's passenger, 42-year-old John McMahon of Port Angeles, was transported to Olympic Medical Center and then airlifted to Harborview Medical Center in Seattle.
Wyckoff and his passenger, 20-year-old Corbin Reneman of Sequim, were transported to Olympic Medical Center.
The driver of the Honda was transported to OMH as a precaution.
The investigation into the accident continues.
