Two people were found dead after a roll-over collision on Roza Hill Drive late Wednesday, according to the Yakima County Sheriff’s Office.
Moxee police, sheriff’s deputies and firefighters responded to a single-vehicle crash in the 9000 block of Roza Hill Drive east of the Terrace Heights Landfill at 11:45 p.m., a Sheriff’s Office news release said.
An initial investigation found a 2008 Honda Accord was eastbound when the driver lost control for an unknown reason. The vehicle slid sideways, struck a dirt berm, rolled and came to rest on its top, then caught fire, the release said. The crash started a small brush fire that was put out by the East Valley Fire Department.
The vehicle’s occupants were Griselda Madrigal, 39, and Ignacio Hernandez, 41, both of the Moxee area, the Sheriff’s Office said.
It is not known if intoxicants were involved, with results pending from the coroner’s office. The Sheriff’s Office Traffic Unit is investigating.
