Driver Macario N. Saldana, 30, driving a 2005 Ford Escape grey 4-door sedan, was eastbound on I-82 at milepost 66 when it collided with a jersey barrier, spun-out and came to rest facing westbound in the eastbound shoulder, according to the Washington State Patrol report.

The vehicle was determined to be totaled.
