A 31-year-old woman died Saturday night near Hoquiam after the vehicle she was riding in was struck by another car, according to the Washington State Patrol.
Three people were injured in the same vehicle: A 29-year-old Aberdeen man, a 12-year-old boy and a 6-year-old girl.
A 30-year-old Belfair man, who allegedly caused the crash, was unhurt. His passenger, though, a 30-year-old Tacoma woman, was injured and flown to Harborview Medical Center in Seattle.
A nursing supervisor at Harborvew said the Tacoma woman was in serious condition and headed to ICU.

About 9:40 p.m., the Belfair man was northbound in his 1998 BMW on state Route 109, near Hoquiam, when he passed another vehicle and struck a southbound 2002 Dodge Neon that contained four people, including the woman who died.
After the crash, the Belfair man’s vehicle wound up on its side, while the Dodge Neon stopped in the middle of state Route 109. The road was closed for six and a half hours, according to the state patrol.
The Belfair man faces a possible charge of vehicular homicide. Drugs or alcohol also were thought to be a factor.
The state patrol also said the family of the passengers in the Dodge Neon have requested that names and city of residence be withheld.
