PUYALLUP, Wash. - A violent collision near Puyallup ripped an SUV in half and threw half in the Puyallup River.

The State Patrol says the 19-year-old woman driver who fishtailed out of control was ejected and killed about 5 a.m. Thursday on Highway 167.

Trooper Brandy Kessler says a 14-year-old girl passenger was injured and taken to Mary Bridge Hospital in Tacoma. The girl said they had been at a party. She fell asleep and woke up on the pavement.

A man in his 20s who was driving the oncoming car was taken to Harborview Medical Center in Seattle with critical injuries. Two other cars were damaged in the pileup.

Troopers say a woman in her 20s who was found later on the bank of the Puyallup River near Fife was not involved in the crash.
