An Eatonville woman died and another motorist was injured in a traffic accident Tuesday on State Route 161.

The State Patrol identified the deceased motorist as Susan L. Adams, 47.

The accident occurred just south Jensen Road East. Troopers said Adams was driving north on the highway when her vehicle, a passenger car, collided head-on with a pickup truck that was southbound when it veered to the right, overcorrected and crossed into the northbound lane. The collision left the vehicles blocking both lanes.

The driver of the truck, Vincent Campano, 86, of Eatonville, was taken to a Tacoma hospital for treatment of injuries, according to the State Patrol.

An investigation of the accident was continuing.
