A 33-year-old Moses Lake woman was killed in a crash south of Ephrata Tuesday night. Seven others were injured and taken to the hospital.

The crash happened just after 9:00 p.m.

According to the Washington State Patrol, 38-year-old Andrew Gilbert was driving a Pontiac G6 with 33-year-old Monica Gonzalez in the passenger seat. The Pontiac was stopped at a stop sign on Road 9 NW before turning onto SR 283.

Troopers said the Pontiac pulled out in front of an oncoming Toyota Sequoia, which hit the Pontiac on the right passenger side, killing Gonzalez.

Gilbert was injured and taken to Columbia Basin Hospital. The six people who were in the Sequoia, who ranged in age from three to 76 years old, were all injured and taken the hospital out of precaution.

WSP said neither drugs or alcohol were involved in this crash.
