Fatal car accident still under investigation

Posted: Updated:

KENNEWICK, Wash. – Fatal car accident still under investigation. A Kennewick woman was killed in a car accident Monday night going westbound on Highland Drive and Olympia Street.

Police say the vehicle she was driving went off the road and crashed through several fences and rolled several times before coming to a stop.

The woman in the vehicle was Sally Meador, 53 of Kennewick.  Friends, family and co-workers remember her as a kind and loving person.

Frank Murray of the Columbia Basin College says "the caring that she gave to her students was the same kind of caring that she gave to everybody she came in contact with. That's the kind of human she was."

Sally was a woman not only dedicated to her students, but everyone she worked with.   She spent seven years at Columbia Basin College as a Worksource Training Specialist. She helped many people find jobs.

There are still a lot of questions about Sally's death and very few answers. Police are looking at all possible factors, with speed being the primary cause.

Sgt. Ken Lattin of the Kennewick Police Department says "the reason then becomes why was speed a factor. So we will try and examine the computer inside the car to see if there was any malfunctions and what sort of dynamics did the driver have."
