DAVENPORT, Wash. (AP) — The Washington State Patrol says four people have died in a truck-car crash on Highway 2 about 13 miles west of Davenport in Lincoln County.
The crash was reported around 6:30 p.m. and the state patrol says there were “multiple confirmed fatalities.” All four people in the car died at the scene, Trooper Jeff Sevigney said.
Sevigney says it appears the westbound passenger car crossed the center lane and hit the truck head on. The driver of the semi was not injured but was taken to Lincoln Hospital in Davenport as a precaution.
The accident closed the roadway for several hours and traffic was detoured onto Miles Creston Road and Highway 25.
Trooper Jeff Sevigney said late Wednesday there was another fatal crash just a county away on I-90 westbound near Ritzville.
No further information was immediately available.
