3 dead, 2 injured in head-on crash near Brewster
The Washington State Patrol says three people were killed and two others injured in a head-on crash on Highway 97 north of Brewster on Tuesday afternoon.
The Wenatchee World reports two Bridgeport residents -- Shannon D. Santacruz, 42, and Theresa M. Santacruz, 24, -- were killed, along with a 46-year-old Okanogan woman, whose name has not been released.
Two passengers were taken to a nearby hospital.
A Washington State Patrol report said the woman from Okanogan was driving north around 4:40 p.m. and crossed the center line, striking the vehicle driven by Santacruz.
All of the passengers were in Santacruz's vehicle.
The report also said everyone was wearing a seat belt. It's unknown whether drugs or alcohol were involved.
