A woman died at the scene of a two-vehicle crash on Yelm Highway on Wednesday morning, Thurston County and Lacey fire officials said.
About 7:20 a.m. Wednesday, Lacey Fire District 3 was dispatched to Yelm Highway and Canterwood Drive Southeast. That’s where they found a two-car crash. The woman injured in the crash had been removed from the car and a passer-by was performing CPR, Battalion Chief Tim Hulse said.
Fire officials took over and continued CPR, but she later died at the scene, he said.
The woman, 70, was from Olympia, Thurston County Coroner Gary Warnock said Wednesday.
The driver of the other vehicle was not injured, Hulse said.
Yelm Highway reopened about 12:30 p.m. Wednesday.
