The accident happened around 6:45 pm on Highway 138 near 175th Street East. A 1998 Camaro driven by a 22 year old man was speeding when it lost control on a curve and veered into an oncoming lane, striking a 2012 Ford Fusion hard enough to split it in half. The Camaro overturned, and was then struck by a 2007 Chrysler PT Cruiser that could not stop in time.
A 29 year old female passenger in the Fusion identified as Miriam Contreras was tragically pronounced dead at the scene. The driver of the Camaro, 22 year old Jesse Sandoval, was also killed. The driver of the Fusion, a 31 year old man, and the two other passengers, a 10 year old girl and a 4 year old girl, were all hospitalized with major injuries. The accident remains under investigation at this time to determine cause and liability.
