QUINCY, WA (December 16, 2019) – Authorities identified 64-year-old Lynn Coffman of Tacoma as the woman killed in a two-car crash on Highway 28, Monday evening.
According to the Washington State Patrol, the incident happened at about 6:00 PM. A 2005 Dodge Caravan slid off of the road into the eastbound ditch of Highway 28. A short time later, a semi-truck slid into the ditch and struck the rear of the Caravan.
Emergency responders rushed Coffman, a passenger in the Caravan, to a local hospital, where she later died.
Other Caravan passengers, identified as five children, were transported to hospitals. An 11-year-old girl was transported to Harborview Medical Center with undisclosed injuries. Meanwhile, two other girls, ages 7 and 5, and two boys, a 12-year-old and a 4-month-old, were transported to Quincy Valley Hospital.
Paramedics also transported the semi-truck driver, 57-year-old Lorenzo Mendoza, and the Caravan driver, 37-year-old Sarah Scheid, to Quincy Valley Hospital.
