28-Year-Old Woman and 30-Year-Old Man Killed in Single-Car Crash near Benton City
PROSSER, WA (August 26, 2018) – On Sunday evening, two people were killed in a car crash on the 82 Freeway, between Benton City and Prosser. The deceased victims were later identified as 28-year-old Amy Moffat of Provo, Utah, and 30-year-old Stephen Graham from Riverton, Utah.
The incident occurred at milepost 88 near West Gibbon Road, just after 7:00 PM. According to the Washington State Patrol, Moffat was driving her Ford pickup truck westbound on the 82 Freeway when she fell asleep. Because of this, her vehicle veered off the road, over-corrected, and rolled over several times.
Both Moffat and her passenger, Graham, suffered fatal injuries and were pronounced dead at the scene by emergency responders. No other injuries were reported in the collision.
State troopers, along with the Benton County Sheriff’s officials, were working to clear the scene until around 9:30 PM. The westbound lanes of Highway 82 near milepost 88 were completely shut down for some time. No additional information has been released to the public at this time.
