A crash on Military Road on Sunday left two people in critical condition, according to the King County Sheriff’s Office (KCSO).

A 33-year-old Lake Tapps man was driving a Ford Explorer southbound in the 37200 block of Military Road S. For unknown reasons, the man crossed over the center line and collided with a Ford van traveling northbound on Military Road, according to the KCSO.

The two occupants of the van, a 70-year-old Auburn man and a 65-year-old Auburn woman, were taken to Harborview Medical Center in critical condition. The other driver had his 3-year-old daughter with him at the time of the crash and she was taken to Valley Medical Center to be examined.

KCSO notes that there appears to be no evidence of alcohol or drugs being a contributing factor to the crash.
