Two people killed in two collisions in Grant County
GRANT COUNTY, Wash. — Two fatal collisions claimed the lives of two people in Grant County.
Around 8 pm on Thursday night, the Grant County Sheriff’s Office along with other emergency units responded to a crash near Quincy, Washington.
A 2004 Lexus RX330 driven by 39-year-old Carrie Bock of Wenatchee was west on Road 5 when she lost control on the icy road. The Lexus struck and slid down the top of the guardrail, rolled over and came to rest on its top in the irrigation canal.
One of the passengers, 73-year-old Karen L. Bock, died at the scene.
Carrie Bock sustained serious injuries and was transported to Confluence Health-Central Washington Hospital. She was later transported to Harborview Medical Center in Seattle.
Two other passengers, 19-year-old Quynton Hamilton and a seven-year-old boy, both from Wenatchee, sustained non-life-threatening injuries and were taken to Quincy Valley Medical Center.
All occupants were wearing seatbelts. The Sheriff’s Office says excessive speed is thought to be the cause of this collision.
Later the same night, around 12:30 am, authorities and emergency units responded to another accident near Royal City.
31-year-old Autumn Kynaston was driving a 1999 Lincoln Navigator south on Dodson Road when she lost control on the icy road.
The vehicle rolled three-and-a-half times before coming to rest in a field.
Kynaston was not wearing a seat belt and was ejected and died at the scene.
Excessive speed and alcohol contributed to this collision.
Please remember to drive carefully and even slow down a bit if you feel you must during icy conditions.
