US HWY 2 Fatal Car Crash

Accident in Dryden Leaves Two Dead

Red 1979 Chevy Camaro after colliding with white 2005 GMC Sierra pickup in US HWY 2 crash near Dryden Shell gas station.

At the intersection of Foster Rd and US HWY 2, a red 1979 Chevy Camaro collided with a white 2005 GMC Sierra pickup going east-bound, killing two passengers within the Camaro.

Approximately 3 p.m. on Sep. 22, Deputy Duke was on the scene at the time of the crash. He states that the Camaro tried heading across four lanes of traffic from the stop sign at Foster Rd to what appeared to be in the direction of the Dryden Shell station.

The Sierra pickup heading east-bound US HWY 2 towards Wenatchee tried to swerve left to avoid impact, but could not avoid the oncoming collision. The truck hit the driver's side of the Chevy Camaro.

The 60 year-old woman driving the car died on impact, while the passenger was transported to the Central Washington Hospital, where they subsequently died from critical injuries.

The driver of the Sierra pickup sustained minor injuries, but survived the collision.

Authorities found that the Camaro had been at fault due to not yielding to oncoming traffic.
