Ryan Parke Killed in Ellensburg, WA, 18-wheeler Accident

Ellensburg, WA -- February 9, 2017, Ryan Parke was fatally injured following an accident where his vehicle collided with a disabled 18-wheeler.

The Washington State Police reported that the fatal crash occurred around 1:00 a.m. near the intersection of State Highway 10 and US 97.

Their investigations indicate that 42-year-old Parke was driving a GMC Rally Wagon eastbound on the highway. Ahead of him, an 18-wheeler driven by 54-year-old Jeffery Ayers had become disabled in a snow bank and was stopped on the highway. For some reason, Parke could not avoid the truck in time, and he crashed into the back of the truck.

Emergency officials say that Parke sustained fatal injuries in the collision, and he was pronounced dead at the scene. Ayers was not injured.

It's unclear exactly what factors contributed to the crash. Investigations are still ongoing.
