A 43-year-old Tonasket man was killed in a one-car rollover on State Route 155 about eight miles north of Nespelem on Friday.

Washington State Patrol said Joseph Gutierrez was driving when his car left the road for an unknown reason, traveled 75 yards and rolled twice before landing on its wheels.

The highway was completely blocked for several hours. Washington State Patrol Trooper John Bryant said the road reopened just before 3 p.m.

Bryant said Gutierrez was wearing a seatbelt. It is unclear what caused the crash.
