A Federal Way man was killed in a rollover crash near Prosser on Thursday and was identified as 29-year-old Ricardo Lopez-Contreras.
He was in the eastbound lanes of Interstate 82 about noon when his silver 1998 Kia Sportage crossed the center line and hit a gray 2015 Volkswagen Passat near one of the first exits to Prosser, according to the Washington State Patrol.
Lopez Contreras’s Sportage left the road and tumbled down a steep embankment, said a state patrol trooper.
The driver was pronounced dead at the scene.
