Collision on I-5 blocks lanes for three hours for death investigation

Monday, January 25, 2021

A three car collision on northbound I-5 Sunday, January 24, 2021 around 7:15pm blocked the two right lanes for two hours during the investigation.

The incident was just north of Northgate Way at NE 117th.

According to the State Patrol, a northbound driver lost control of his car and ended up stopped partially blocking lane 1 with no lights.

A second vehicle in the same lane ran into the stopped car and ended up stopped in front of the first car.

The driver of the second vehicle got out of his car and started walking toward the first car when he was struck by a third car.

The man, identified as Daniel Jinguji, 64, died at the scene.

The scene was cleared at 10:30pm.

Dan touched so many lives. You know he was concerned about the driver of the truck. So sad.

Dan was a colleague and friend for many years, and a truly kind person. I've no doubt he was hoping to help the person in the first car. That's who Dan was.

Dan was not only my friend, but a friend to my two sons. He was a fellow graduate student and an educator, and someone I could have long conversations with about topics from linguistics, to physics, to computer science, to engineering, to music. He will be missed by me and all his family here in Pullman.

So very sad. He comes from a wonderful family. His sisters are brilliant and compassionate also.

Last time we talked to Dan was when he was about to move out from Seattle for his doctorate degree in Washington State U. We told him we will miss him as cantor in St James Cathedral. He said he was just taking a leave for a couple of years or so and will be back singing at the cathedral in no time. We're looking forward to that... very sad to learn about his sudden demise.

The choir of angels truly lucky to have you join them, Dan... continue praising God with your beautiful singing voice.

We pray for God's comforting embrace to all loved ones Dan left behind.
