A female passenger was killed Sunday when the SUV she was riding in slammed into a tree, according to the Washington State Patrol.
The incident occurred on state Route 7 about two miles south of Eatonville around 5:30 p.m.
A 29-year-old Gig Harbor man was traveling north when his Nissan Xterra left the highway at 453rd Street East and hit a tree. His passenger, a 29-year-old Kent woman, was killed.
The driver was taken to St. Joseph Medical Center in Tacoma.
State Route 7 was blocked for more than three hours during the investigation.
