A vehicle that lost control on northbound Interstate 5 near Custer, Washington, slammed into the rear of a Washington State Trooper vehicle.

The driver died at the scene.

The trooper was sent to a nearby hospital with serious injuries.

Remember to change lanes and move over (when you can) for troopers. They risk their lives every day to help us with flat tires, stalled engines, collisions and worse. Give them a wide berth if possible.
