Alea Price, 24, of Seattle, was killed this morning when her disabled car was struck by a semi-truck on Interstate 405 in Bellevue.
Price had contacted 911 several times and reported that she may have struck a deer and her car was stranded in a left-center lane. A Washington State Patrol trooper and her boyfriend were both on the way when her vehicle was struck by a semi truck, killing her.
The WSP is investigating the accident but they do not believe that alcohol or drugs were involved. The accident occurred around 4:30am and, at this point, it is not know whether Price had her flashers on or why the semi truck driver did not see her vehicle.
Nearly 1.5 million vehicles collide with deer every year resulting in injury and death. However, one does not expect deer to be crossing the I-405 in Bellevue.
