The vehicle, a 1999 Dodge Ram pickup, was being driven by 63-year-old Catherine L. Bertelson of Ellensburg, who was declared deceased at the scene. She had two passengers: 21-year-old Christopher B. Kraus of Ellensburg and 21-year-old Tessa L. Seimears of Ellensburg, both of whom were injured and transported by ambulance to Kittitas Valley Healthcare.
