5 hurt in suspected DUI accident in Tacoma

Five people were injured early Christmas morning in a head-on crash on state Route 16 in Tacoma.

The State Patrol said the driver of a BMW – a 35-yearold Tacoma man – was heading in the wrong direction. Authorities suspect he was driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs.

The SUV driver, Maura Senecal, 22, and her three passengers – Conor Senecal, 24, Clare Senecal, 19, and Aidan Senecal, 16 – are the children of well-known oncologist Frank Senecal and his wife, Mary, of University Place.

A Multicare spokeswoman said Maura and Aidan were in satisfactory condition while Conor and Clare had been released from the hospital.
