Details released about 6 killed in Tacoma crash


TACOMA — Four of six people killed in a wreck Sunday on Tacoma’s Tideflats were from Arizona, the Washington State Patrol reported.

The victims all were riding in a 2012 Kia that collided with a 2021 BMW X7 at State Route 509 and Alexander Avenue East about 11:17 a.m. Sunday. Those killed were:

  • A 19-year-old woman from Phoenix.
  • A 21-year-old man whose address was not released.
  • The female driver, whose age and hometown were not released.
  • A 22-year-old man from Phoenix.
  • A 25-year-old woman from Tuba City.
  • A 25-year-old man from Kayenta.

A 21-year-old man from Phoenix survived the crash and was taken to St. Joseph Medical Center for treatment, troopers said. He was in critical condition Sunday evening.

Two people in the BMW, a 42-year-old man and a 40-year-old woman from Tacoma, also were taken to St. Joseph for treatment.

It is unknown if any of the nine people involved in the crash were wearing a seat belt, according to the news release.

Troopers said the Kia was east on Alexander Avenue when it crossed into the northbound lanes of Route 509 and was hit by the BMW, which was traveling north on the highway. Speed and running a red light were listed as possible causes of the wreck, though troopers continue to investigate.
