The state patrol is asking motorists for information about a deadly Oct. 17 accident on Interstate 90 near Snoqualmie pass.
The crash injured a 47-year-old Issaquah woman, Lilian H. Skelton. Idaho motorists Jess A. Bass, 68, and Jean E. Bass, 73, died in the accident.
Washington State Patrol troopers said the accident occurred just before 11 a.m. on the eastbound interstate just east of Snoqualmie Pass.
Investigators said a tractor-trailer collided with the Bass’ Jeep Cherokee, starting a chain-reaction crash. Troopers said another truck slammed into the rear of a Buick LeSabre.
The state patrol is seeking witnesses to the collision and the events preceding the incident. Call Sgt. Jerry Cooper at 360-805-1192 or Detective Curt Ladines at 360-805-1160.
Medics transported Skelton and other injured motorists to Overlake Hospital Medical Center in Bellevue.
