Federal Way man injured in Kent crash along Highway 167

Early Sunday morning, July 11 near State Route 516

A 25-year-old Federal Way man was injured after he rolled his car along northbound Highway 167 in Kent, exited the vehicle and then was struck by another vehicle.

The Federal Way man was driving at about 2:43 a.m. Sunday, July 11 on the freeway near State Route 516 when his 2015 Ford Focus left the roadway, struck the barrier and continued rolling until it landed in the HOV lane, according to the Washington State Patrol. The man exited his car and stood near the front left side.

Moments later, a 74-year-old Seattle man driving a 2003 Toyota Highlander in the HOV lane swerved to avoid the Ford Focus and struck the left side of it and hit the driver. The Highlander came to rest in lane two. The Seattle man was not injured.

Paramedics transported the Federal Way man to Harborview Medical Center in Seattle. As of early Monday afternoon, July 12, the man remained in critical condition, according to a hospital spokeswoman.

The State Patrol listed speed as the cause of the crash. It was unknown if drugs or alcohol were involved. Both vehicles were totaled.
