A Federal Way driver and his brother heading the wrong way on State Route 516 in Kent were killed in a Monday night crash that also injured six other people, the Washington State Patrol reports.

Two men were killed and six others hurt in a wrong-way collision Monday night in Kent.

The accident occurred about 11:30 p.m. on state Route 516, just east of Meeker Street. Four vehicles were involved.

The Washington State Patrol said a 1988 Toyota Camry driven by Faalfua Ili, 38, of Federal Way was traveling east in the westbound lanes of state Route 516 when it sideswiped a 1999 Lexus RX.

The Lexus was knocked into a spin and hit by a 2005 Nissan Altima.

The driver of another vehicle, a 2007 Chevrolet Cobalt, tried to avoid the wreck and hit the guardrail and then the Lexus.

Ili, and his passenger in the Camry, brother Freddie Ili, 36, of Federal Way, were killed, the State Patrol said.

The driver of the Lexus, a 59-year-old Seattle man, was hurt and taken to Harborview Medical Center in Seattle, where he was listed in critical condition Tuesday. A passenger in the Lexus, a 54-year-old Des Moines woman, was listed in serious condition at Harborview.

A 5-year-old girl who was a passenger in the Altima was hurt and listed in serious condition at Harborview. The driver of that vehicle, a 43-year-old woman, was in satisfactory condition.

Conditions of other drivers and passengers were not available.

The road was closed for nearly six hours.
