TACOMA, Wash. — Five people were injured in a crash that troopers suspect was caused by an impaired teen driver Sunday evening.
It was just before 7:30 p.m. when a 19-year-old man driving a Honda Civic north on SR-7 in Pierce County when he attempted to pass a car in front of him in a curve, troopers said. Instead, he struck an oncoming Ford SUV head-on, according to troopers.
