Tannija J. Smith, 24, of Aberdeen, was identified Monday as the woman who died in a wreck on state Route 8 in Thurston County, according to the Washington State Patrol.
Smith died Saturday night when the pickup truck she was riding in lost control and crashed on eastbound SR 8 at Wilson Road. The vehicle left the road, hit a guard rail, then wound up about 25 feet from SR 8.
The 21-year-old Elma man driving the pickup was hurt and taken to Providence St. Peter Hospital in Olympia.
The right lane of eastbound SR 8 was closed for nearly four hours.
