WENATCHEE, Washington — A Clearfield woman died early Sunday morning after a rollover crash in central Washington, authorities said.

Rachel Odima, 20, died in the crash, which took place just before 2 a.m. Sunday on Washington Route 97A about two miles north of Wenatchee, according to Washington State Patrol officials.

Odima was driving south when her Toyota Corolla veered into oncoming traffic, according to a tweet from Washington State Patrol Trooper John Bryant.

A northbound Toyota 4Runner swerved into the southbound lane to try to avoid the Corolla, but the two vehicles collided, according to a news release from Washington State Patrol. The Corolla continued sliding and hit the side of another northbound car, the release states.

The Corolla came to rest upside-down in a ditch off the northbound side of the highway, according to the release.

Odima was wearing a seatbelt, but died as a result of the crash, according to the release. None of the six people in the other two cars had injuries, the release states.

It is unclear why Odima’s car drifted into oncoming traffic. Investigators do not know if any drugs or alcohol factored into the crash.
