An 18-year-old Hermiston woman died Monday afternoon when she lost control of her car on Interstate 82 south of Kennewick.
Maia R. Taylor was alone in the Chrysler 200 when it ran off the highway and rolled several times down a steep embankment five miles from Kennewick.
The hillside was so steep, special emergency crews from the Kennewick Fire Department needed to help. The Washington State Patrol said she was not wearing a seat belt.
