Two killed in morning crash west of Ritzville on I-90

Two people have been killed in a single car crash on I-90 Monday.

The crash happened Monday morning around 6:30 a.m. at milepost 200 which is about 20 miles west of Ritzville.

Washington State Patrol say 56-year-old José A. Pineiro was driving a Silver 1997 Honda Accord with his passenger, 47-year-old Barbara R. Pineiro. Troopers report the car was eastbound on I-90 when it left the roadway to the left, entered the median, continued eastbound and came to rest on Bantum Road, which passes underneath I-90.

Both the driver and the passenger were pronounced dead at the scene of the crash. Neither of them was wearing a seat belt.

Washington State Patrol says the cause of the crash is still under investigation.
