A Snohomish man died Sunday morning in a rollover collision on Interstate 90, southeast of Ritzville in Adams County, according to the Washington State Patrol.

Tony T. Phelps, 37, was driving a black 2002 Ford F250 west on I-90 just before 3:32 a.m., nearing milepost 221. The Ford was pulling a trailer, which jackknifed, causing the Ford to skid from the right shoulder to the median, roll and eject Phelps. The truck stopped on the driver’s side in the median.

Phelps died at the scene and was not wearing a seat belt. The truck was totaled.

The WSP deemed the cause of the collision to be speed too fast for conditions/icy road.
