Kennewick Police say excessive speed is likely a factor (and possibly the weather?) In a fatal crash Monday night.
SPEED DRIVER HITS ANOTHER FRONT
Shortly after 7:15 p.m., Kennewick Police responded to an area near 31. Ave. and South Ely Streets, and found a frontal accident.
Authorities say Angel Mendoza, 25, was heading south of South Ely when he lost control of his 2021 Mercedes. He crossed the center line, hitting head-on a 2010 Jeep Wrangler.
Both occupants of the Jeep were seriously injured, but after being taken to an area hospital, they are expected to make a full recovery.
However Mendoza died at the scene of his injuries. The investigation is continuing.
