Spokane Valley Woman Killed In I-90 Crash

FOUR LAKES – A Spokane Valley woman was killed early Saturday morning after her SUV crashed on Interstate 90 near Four Lakes.

The crash happened around 3 a.m. in the eastbound lanes near Exit 270.  The Washington State Patrol says that a 1992 Chevrolet Blazer driven by 31-year-old Amy Quiroz of Spokane Valley went out of control and rolled several times in the median.  There were two adults and three children in the vehicle. 

Quiroz, who was wearing a seat belt, was partially ejected from the Blazer and died at the scene.  The other adult passenger, 32-year-old Enrique Ortega of Spokane Valley, was taken to Deaconess Medical Center, where he was treated and released.

Two children, 13-year-old Abigail Quiroz and five-year-old Ramone Quiroz, were injured and taken to Scared Heart Medical Center, where they are in critical condition.  A three-year-old boy, Mario Ortega, was uninjured, but was taken to Sacred Heart as a precaution.

The inside eastbound lane of I-90 was closed for four hours as the investigation was underway.
