One person was killed in a four-car collision in Fife on March 13, according to police there.

Fife police are seeking any witnesses to a chain-reaction crash that killed a Puyallup man March 13.

The four-vehicle wreck about 1 p.m. on 70th Avenue East, just before Valley Avenue East, killed Tanner Munden, 38, and injured another driver.

Police said the driver who caused the wreck, a man in his 20s, was trying to pass a group of cars on 70th Avenue at high speed but the lane he was in turned into a turn-only lane.

He got back into the left lane but smashed into the back of Munden’s car, which slammed into the SUV in front of his car. The SUV then hit a box truck.

Anyone who saw the crash was asked to contact Officer Robert Eugley at 253-896-8276 or reugley@cityoffife.org.
