A Quincy man was identified as the victim of Monday’s fiery crash near Othello.
Miguel A. Penado, 58, died when his semi-truck left Highway 17, hit a power pole and caught fire about 2 p.m.
He was driving south in the 2010 International Prostar semi when he lost control about 23 miles south of Othello, according to the Washington State Patrol.
The truck lost a trailer but kept going along the side of the highway and hit a fence and a power pole before stopping in a yard and catching fire against a pine tree. Traffic was rerouted for several hours while the WSP investigated.
