SEATTLE - A second victim has died at Seattle’s Harborview Medical Center as a result of a fatality collision that killed a 15-year Mattawa girl in early August about 16 miles east of Mattawa.

Kenneth Crawford, 65, of Mesa, died Monday due to complications from a head-on collision on state Route 24 on Aug. 1, according to a press release. Crawford’s next of kin has been notified by the hospital.

According to state troopers, a Honda traveling eastbound around 5 a.m. August. 1, driven by 18-year-old Felix Rangel Diaz, attempted to pass a semi and crashed head-on into a Chrysler PT Cruiser. The Cruiser was driven by Crawford and had a single passenger, Karen Crawford, 62. The juvenile female that died immediately as a result of the crash was a passenger in Rangel Diaz’ vehicle, not in Crawford’s vehicle, as was initially reported by law enforcement.

Both vehicles came to a rest just east of milepost 47 on the westbound shoulder and reportedly burst into flames, law enforcement said.The driver and a passenger of the Chrysler, both in their 60s, were seriously injured and airlifted to a Richland-area hospital. The 15-year-old passenger died at the scene. Rangel Diaz was also transported to the hospital.

Law enforcement has concluded that Rangel Diaz improperly passed the commercial vehicle and is at fault in the collision. An investigation is underway and charges are pending completion of the investigation.
