SPOKANE, WA - The Washington State Patrol is investigating an Eastern Washington University student in connection with a traffic accident that killed two other students.

Investigation records in the vehicular homicide probe say Erica Polito Moss, 21, was drinking in a Pullman bar in the early morning hours of Feb. 21. After several hours of sleep, Moss attempted to drive back to Cheney with three other women, all of them students at EWU.
    
The documents say her blood alcohol content registered a 0.081, which is above the legal threshold to drive.
    
Shortly before 5 a.m., her small car slid on what investigators say may have been black ice on state Highway 195. The car collided with a semi-truck pulling two trailers.

Ashley Gonzales, 21, of Pasco and Natalie Zepeda, of Quincy were both killed in the accident.
