The Washington State Patrol has identified the two people who were killed on Saturday when they were involved in a 4-car collision on SR 510 near Nisqually.
They are identified as Molly R. Rector, 36, of Olympia; and her passenger Samuel P. Davies, 34, of Hoodsport.
The collision occurred just after 4:00 pm Saturday, and involved four cars. One of the other drivers was transported to St. Peter’s Hospital with an unknown extent of injuries. Two others were treated and released at the scene.
The collision was caused when the 2006 Nissan Sentra being driven by the female who died drifted into the right shoulder, over-corrected, and ended up going into oncoming traffic, striking two cars. The fourth car drove through the debris field immediately following the collision and that driver was not injured.
It is unknown if drugs and/or alcohol were a factor in the collision.
