LACEY, Wash. (AP) — The Washington State Patrol says a 28-year-old Tacoma is dead after driving the wrong way on Interstate 5 in Lacey and crashing into an oncoming car.

LAKEWOOD, Wash. (AP) — Talk about gunning the engine.
Authorities say a driver near Tacoma, Washington, saw an object strike the front of his car during his evening commute Wednesday. When he stopped for gas 18 miles (29 kilometers) later, he discovered it was a handgun.
The weapon was embedded in his bumper, barrel-end first, with the trigger sticking out just below the driver's-side headlight.
