Othello woman killed on SR 17


An Othello woman is dead after being hit by a car on State Route 17 late Tuesday night.

The accident happened about 10 miles north of Othello.

Washington State Patrol troopers say just after 10 PM, 49-year-old Maria Farias - who was driving southbound - struck a car that was stopped in front of her.

When Farias got out of her car after the accident, she was hit by another car going the same direction.

Troopers are investigating the fatal crash.

They say it does not appear drugs or alcohol played a role in the accident.
