Multiple people are dead after a crash involving a semi on Interstate 90 east of the Snoqualmie Pass summit.

According to the Washington State Patrol, I-90 East was closed, just west of Easton, Thursday morning as troopers investigated the deadly crash.

Troopers said the semi was traveling westbound on I-90 and crossed over the median into eastbound traffic.

A 40-year-old man who was driving a Kia Optima died at the scene. Two of his passengers died at Seattle's Harborview Medical Center: a 27-year-old woman and a 10-year-old child. All were from Yakima, Washington.

Two others in the Kia survived the crash. A 36-year-old woman was taken to Kittitas Valley Hospital and a 6-year-old child was taken to Harborview.
