One person was killed when she was ejected from a vehicle in a car crash approximately six miles north of Conconully early Monday morning.
The crash happened near Fish Lake Road and Sinlahekin Road before 6:30 a.m.
The investigation by Okanogan County Sheriff’s deputies so far indicates a 2001 Ford Focus was traveling southbound on Sinlahekin Road when the driver went around a corner and went over an embankment, rolling the car at least twice. The driver, Carissa Amundson, 22, of Omak was ejected from the vehicle and died at the scene.
One passenger was able to climb out of the vehicle and walked two miles down the road to the campground at Fish Lake to get help. She was later transported to Mid-Valley Hospital for treatment of her injuries. A second passenger was still in the vehicle while the first went to go get help. He suffered a head injury and was taken to Central Washington Hospital in Wenatchee for medical treatment.
Deputies say that speed was not a factor in the crash, and its not known yet if drugs or alcohol were a factor. The investigation is ongoing and all family members have been notified.
