I-82 Fatal Crash Victims Identified
Tuesday evening, three people died in a multi-car crash on I-82, about a mile from the Clearwater Exit near Kennewick.
The Washington State Patrol said around 7:15pm 54-year-old Antonio Vasquez-Perez of Peshashtin, WA was driving his pickup eastbound when he lost control. The vehicle rolled across the median, coming to a rest in the westbound lanes. It was then struck by an SUV driven by 39-year-old Lucy Heinkel. She and her six-month old daughter were injured and taken to a nearby hospital.
Perez and two passengers in his truck, 50-year-old Ceila Vasquez of Peshashtin and 71-year-old Adella Trujillo of Manson, WA died in the crash. The State Patrol is still investigating what caused the truck to lose control and roll.
