QUINCY- A 24-year old Quincy woman was killed early Saturday morning after being run off the road by her ex-boyfriend.

Just after midnight, Washington State Patrol says 24-year-old Jessica Cuali called 911 to report she was being followed by her ex-boyfriend, 26-year-old Carlos Carranza of Wenatchee, just outside Quincy on State Route 28.

Carranza then struck Cuali’s SUV from behind resulting in a rollover collision into an irrigation ditch. Cuali died at the scene. Carranza then fled at a high rate of speed.

Quincy Police observed the vehicle traveling westbound into Quincy and after a short pursuit, Carranza lost control of his car, drove into a ditch, fled and was able to escape.

He was later found at a residence on Boodry Street in Wenatchee and arrested without incident. Carranza was booked into the Grant County Jail and charged with murder in the second degree.
