UPDATE: Fatal Car Accident On I-82 Near Benton City

Posted: Updated:

Washington State Patrol Troopers are investigating a car accident that killed a Benton City woman.

Troopers say 52-year old Josephine Tews was driving eastbound on Interstate-82 just west of Benton City around 6:30 Tuesday morning.

A witness says Tews started to go off the road, over-corrected, then rolled multiple times landing onto the shoulder of the westbound lanes.

A trooper on the scene said Tews wasn't wearing a seat belt and was thrown from the truck, but they are continuing their investigation.
