A head-on collision, which left one woman in serious condition on Saturday night, is being investigated as possibly DUI related, according to police.
A car carrying five female members of bridal party was traveling northbound up Juanita Drive NE in Kirkland just after 6 p.m. when a southbound car crossed the center line in the 13800 block and the two vehicles collided.
