CHEHALIS, WA (KPTV) -

A 15-year-old girl has died after she was hit by a car while crossing Interstate 5 in Chehalis Friday night.

Washington State Patrol Trooper Will Finn says the fatal collision happened before 7 p.m. on southbound I-5 and Mellen Street, near milepost 81.

According to Trooper Finn, the girl was trying to cross I-5 to meet up with friends. She was pronounced dead at the scene.

Trooper Finn says while emergency crews were on scene of the southbound crash, another crash between a semi-truck and car happened in the northbound lanes of I-5. One person was seriously injured in that crash.

According to WSP troopers, the semi-truck driver was impaired and has been arrested.

Southbound lanes on I-5 have reopened but northbound lanes are still closed for investigation. Drivers should expect major delays on I-5 near milepost 81.
