WSP: Man causes collisions on I-5 in Kent, carjacks crash victim

Washington State Patrol is searching for a man suspected of causing a four-car collision on I-5 near Kent, then carjacking a crash victim and speeding off.

Authorities say the carjacking happened around 8:15 p.m. Saturday.

The suspect was driving a white passenger car reported stolen out of Lakewood, going north on I-5 near 288th St. WSP said the suspect struck a car in the HOV lane and lost control, veering across the freeway and causing a four-car crash.

Authorities say the suspect got out of the car and went to a different car—a 2002 Subaru Legacy being driven by a 74-year-old woman. She reportedly unlocked the door thinking he was coming to help her, but WSP said he instead pulled her from the car and shoved her toward traffic.
