MCCLEARY, Wash. - The driver of a car was killed in a two-car crash between Elma and McCleary Monday afternoon.

 

The driver of the second car was also injured, as well as a passenger in the car in which the driver died.

Video from Chopper 7 showed the car of the deceased driver down a ravine near Wildcat Creek.

 

Troopers said it is not known if the crash was head-on and said one car may have been trying to cross the highway at a cross street.

 

The two people who were injured were transported to Mark Reed Hospital with non-life-threatening injuries.
