A 32-year-old Tacoma man was arrested on suspicion of vehicular homicide and DUI after an early morning crash in Puyallup, police said.

Around 2:10 a.m. Sunday, police were dispatched to the 2200 block of South Meridian after a Tacoma man who called 911 reported he had crashed into a vehicle parked in the middle of the road. He also discovered an unresponsive man lying on the ground next to his car.

A Tacoma man tried to resuscitate the man, but he died at the scene, police said.

Police later determined that a Tacoma man hit another man with his car, although they are not sure why the man’s car was stopped in the middle of the road or why he left it.

A 32-year-old woman was also in the car that stopped on the road. She suffered minor injuries and was taken to an area hospital.

Anyone who witnessed the incident is asked to call the Puyallup Police Department’s tip line at 253-770-3343 or email tips@puyallupwa.gov.
