A Port Angeles man was one of two people killed Monday night in a head-on collision between Port Angeles and Sequim.
Aaron Eaton, 24, was found dead at the crash scene on Old Olympic Highway near U.S. 101 shortly before 10 p.m. He was the driver of a Honda Accord that crossed the centerline and struck a Toyota Camry driven by a 42-year-old man from Canada, according to the Clallam County Sheriff’s Department.
The Toyota driver died later at Olympic Memorial Hospital in Port Angeles.
Three female passengers in the Toyota, also Canadians, were injured, and they were airlifted to Harborview Medical Center in Seattle.
Names of the driver and passengers were being withheld pending notification of relatives through the Canadian consulate, said Undersheriff Joe Martin.
