Ellensburg man killed after crashing into a Kittitas County field


An Ellensburg man was killed Monday after the dump truck he was driving crashed into a field off Highway 10 in Kittitas County.

A State Patrol report identified the victim as 43-year old Scott Thayer.

State Patrol Troopers say Thayer was traveling Eastbound when his truck left the roadway and went down an embankment striking a barbed wire fence and tree before coming to rest in the field about seven miles west of Ellensburg.

The driver was dead at the scene.
