A two vehicle collision leaves a 41-year-old woman dead just east of Moses Lake.

Rosalia Zepeda of Othello, 41, was driving north on Road L-NE when her vehicle was struck by Carmen Ortega-Camacho, 49, of Warden.

Ortega-Camacho failed to stop at the stop sign connecting Nelson and Road L-NE which lead her to crash into Zepeda.

Zepeda was enroute to the hospital when she died. Coroner Craig Morrison’s staff will conduct an autopsy on her body.

Ortega-Camacho was taken to Samaritan Healthcare for treatment of minor injuries.

Both vehicles were damaged beyond repair.
