EPHRATA - Icy conditions Tuesday afternoon resulted in a collision just northeast of Ephrata where one person was injured and another was killed.

A release by the Grant County Sheriff’s Office at 11:30 a.m. said the accident occurred on Road B NW between roads 18 and 20 NW.

The driver was pronounced dead at the scene and the injured passenger was transported for non-life-threatening injuries. The release stated the road was to remain closed until 3 p.m. Tuesday.

GCSO Public Information Officer Kyle Foreman said investigators believe the icy canal bridge surface played a role in the collision.
