BLAINE, Wash -- A driver was killed in a head-on crash with a semi truck cab in Blaine Sunday evening.

Troopers say the 56-year-old driver of a Honda Accord was heading north on SR-543 just south of H Street when she crossed into oncoming traffic, striking the cab of a semi truck.

The woman was pronounced dead at the scene. The driver of the cab was not injured.

Troopers say the cause of the crash is still under investigation and it's unclear if the driver might have been impaired.

It was the second fatal crash in Whatcom County on Sunday. About five hours earlier, a 22-year-old driver lost control of his motrocycle along SR-20 near Diablo Road and struck a tree. Troopers say the driver was going too fast for the curve.
