Kimberly Youngblood Dead, Michelle Scheuerman, Omar Lopez, Nallely Lopez and Rosa Valenzuela Injured, Eduardo Lopez Charged in Pasco Accident

 
PASCO, WA (February 5, 2019)– One person was killed and several others were injured in Saturday’s multi-car hit-and-run crash on the 182 Freeway near Road 68.
 
Around 8:30 p.m., 22-year-old Eduardo Lopez was allegedly heading eastbound on the 182 Freeway at a high rate of speed. His Chrysler Sebring rear-ended a Jeep Grand Cherokee, driven by Kimberly D. Youngblood, causing both vehicles to lose control.
 
Lopez’s Chrysler was sent to an embankment in the median while Youngblood’s Jeep veered across the median, where it was struck by three cars.
 
Youngblood, a 44-year-old resident of Benton City, perished at the scene. Omar L. Lopez, 33, suffered a broken right hand and facial injuries after his Nissan Altima struck the Jeep. He was brought to Sacred Heart Medical Center in Spokane for recovery. His 31-year-old passenger, Nallely Lopez, was brought to Kadlec with a broken left arm while another driver, 25-year-old Rosa Valenzuela, was released at the scene after being treated.
 
Michelle L. Scheuerman, who allegedly was the first to strike the overturned Jeep Grand Cherokee after it was pushed into the westbound lanes, suffered serious injuries. The 48-year-old woman, who was driving a Mustang at the time, is not expected to survive, according to her husband.
 
A total of three cars struck the Jeep while two pickups sustained minor damage after striking the debris.
 
Responding Troopers arrived to find all drivers and occupants involved at the scene except the Chrysler Sebring driver. According to a court document, it appeared Lopez attempted to drive the vehicle out of the median, inferring from marks in the soft dirt and mud. He could not be found as of Saturday night.
 
Lopez eventually contacted 911 and turned himself in. His alibis, thus far, remain inconsistent as he had first mentioned he was not involved in the crash then admitted to being the driver. He later explained to authorities that after fleeing from the scene, he called a friend and asked for a ride home.
 
A follow-up investigation of this crash is underway.
