Four-vehicle Appleyard highway crash kills Wenatchee motorist


WENATCHEE — A Saturday morning wreck on Malaga-Alcoa Highway killed a 26-year-old Wenatchee man.

Chelan County sheriff’s deputies say the victim was driving a Subaru Impreza northbound near the Appleyard about 6:45 a.m. when his car crossed the centerline, struck a southbound Subaru Legacy and went into a spin. The victim’s car collided with a third southbound vehicle, while a fourth car had a minor impact while trying to avoid the wreck.

Deputies did not issue the name of the deceased driver, who was pronounced dead at the scene. One other driver received nonfatal injuries and was taken to Central Washington Hospital for treatment.

The wreck remains under investigation, by both the sheriff’s office and the Washington State Patrol.
