The Washington State Patrol suspects a driver speeding more than 100 mph was under the influence of methamphetamine when he struck another car, killing the driver in a fiery crash on I-405 in Bellevue.
Troopers say the driver responsible for the Thursday night crash is a 27-year-old Woodinville man. He remains in a Bellevue hospital Friday morning and the patrol says he'll be jailed for a possible vehicular homicide charge when released.
The patrol says the driver who died in his burning car is a 22-year-old Federal Way man.
The crash occurred just before 10 p.m. Thursday and closed all southbound lanes of the freeway until 5 a.m. Friday.
Two other cars were involved in the crash and a total of four people were injured, in addition to the fatality.
