Quincy man killed in Highway 28 rollover identified


A 42-year old Quincy father of five was killed late yesterday morning in a single-car rollover accident on Highway 28 about a mile west of Quincy. 

According to the Washington State Patrol, Efren Murillo-Tejeda was driving a 2006 Toyota Tacoma pickup eastbound on the highway when he left the roadway to the right while attempting to avoid traffic that had stopped for a vehicle that was making a left turn onto a private driveway. 

Tejeda over-corrected, causing the truck to roll over. 

He was pronounced dead at the scene. 

Tejeda was not wearing a seatbelt.  Traffic was blocked and diverted in both directions for nearly 3 hours.

Tejeda’s family has set up a Go-Fund-Me page to help with his funeral expenses and assist the family.
