Posted: Updated:

COLFAX, Wash. - On Sunday afternoon Deputies from the Whitman County Sheriff's Office and Troopers from the Washington State Patrol responded to the report of a single vehicle fatality accident.

The accident occurred on private property approximately 5 miles southwest of Lacrosse, WA. Based on the initial investigation 19-year-old Taylor Martin of Lacrosse, lost control of the 1988 GMC Suburban he was driving when he traveled off of the roadway and onto a steep hillside. 

He and his passenger were believed to have been hunting in the area when they ventured off of the roadway in a remote area of southwest Whitman County.

After traveling onto the hillside, Martin lost control of the vehicle, causing it to roll several times killing his passenger, 19yoa Amanda Drewer of Endicott, WA. 

Drewer was pronounced dead at the scene. Martin, who was also injured in the accident, was transported via Med-Star to Sacred Heart Hospital in Spokane, WA. 

Martin is believed to have suffered several injures to include a possible broken neck.  He is listed in satisfactory condition.  Neither Martin nor Drewer were wearing seatbelts at the time of the accident. Alcohol may have been a contributing factor. Notifications have been made.
