Brewster man killed in crash near Downing
DOUGLAS CO., Wash. – A 29-year-old Brewster man was killed in a crash near Downing early Monday morning.
The Washington State Patrol said 29-year-old Alejandro Rincon was driving southbound on State Route 173 when he failed to negotiate a turn.
His car crossed into the northbound lanes, he overcorrected and drove off the roadway. WSP said his car struck an embankment and re-entered the road.
Rincon’s car stopped blocking the northbound lane, but it was hit by another car. The second car stopped on the right-hand shoulder and the 20-year-old driver was uninjured.
WSP said Rincon died in the crash.
The road was blocked for more than four hours but has since reopened.
