A 21-year-old Montana man injured in a crash on State Route 507 near Tenino Tuesday evening was airlifted to Seattle and pronounced dead at the hospital, according to Washington State Patrol.

The Montana man had tried to pass a flatbed pickup truck on the right shoulder of northbound SR 507 two miles north of Tenino and his car collided with the truck, according to a State Patrol press memo. The accident occurred at about 6:30 p.m.

The man was airlifted to Harborview Medical Center, according to Washington State Patrol, where he was pronounced dead.

A 71-year-old man driving the pickup truck was not injured, and his vehicle was driven from the scene, according to the press memo.

Northbound SR 507 was blocked for 3 hours and 35 minutes, Trooper Johnna Batiste told The Olympian.
