BELLEVUE, Wash. -- A man police say was driving an Audi that struck a BMW on I-405 Thursday night, causing the death of the BMW driver, was booked into jail on Saturday.

The 26-year-old man was booked into jail for investigation of vehicular homicide and vehicular assault.

Ian Riley Beckford died in the crash Thursday night, and troopers say the driver at fault was under the influence of drugs, possibly methamphetamine.

A spokesperson for Washington State Patrol said the driver of the Audi was going more than 100 miles per hour when he hit the BMW from behind.

The BMW then rolled, caught fire, and came to rest on the shoulder of I-405.

An attorney for the victim's family said Beckford was driving home after spending the day water skiing on Lake Sammamish when his car was struck.

Two other vehicles were also hit, but the drivers of those cars were not injured.

The driver of the Audi and a passenger in that car were taken to Overlake Hospital Medical Center with non-life threatening injuries. The driver was booked into jail after he was released from the hospital.

The suspect's Twitter page showcases a picture of his Audi and Tweets about speeding, including one two weeks ago about smoking rookies and hitting 125 mph.
