MOSES LAKE — A press release by the Grant County Sheriff’s Office Monday said a crash west of Moses Lake Saturday resulted in one dead and three injured.

The release states a 2003 Chevrolet Cavalier was traveling west on South Frontage Road East around 6:30 a.m. when the vehicle failed to negotiate a curve. The curve is about three-tenths of a mile east of Hiawatha Road. The car then left the road to the north, rolled several times and ejected all four occupants.

Karri S. Ortega, 22, of Moses Lake, a 14-year-old female from Quincy, and an unidentified male were flown to Providence Sacred Heart Medical Center in Spokane. One unidentified male was pronounced dead at the scene, the release states.

The release said it is unclear who was driving the car and the GCSO Motor Traffic Unit is investigating.

There is no update on the status of the three surviving victims as of Monday, the release states.
