KLICKITAT COUNTY, WA (KPTV) – A driver died Friday morning after veering into oncoming traffic and crashing into two tractors on Highway 97, Washington State Patrol says.

Arnold Wright, 67, was driving a red 2011 Ford Fiesta hatchback north on Highway 97 about 18 miles north of Goldendale, Washington, when he crossed the center line and hit a blue 2016 Kenworth tractor and flatbed trailer, according to WSP.

Wright continued on to hit a second tractor traveling behind the first, a tan 2006 Peterbilt and trailer, WSP says.

Debris from Wright’s Fiesta hit a third vehicle, a silver 2016 Ford F-250, located behind the two tractors. No injuries to the other drivers were reported.

WSP suspects drugs or alcohol were involved in the collision. The agency continues to investigate.
