Two die in Banks Lake car wreck


Two people died Tuesday night, July 14, in a one-car rollover accident just north of Coulee City.

Antonina Kononewski, 71, of Soap Lake, was driving the white 2001 Subaru Legacy north on SR 155 at 7:05 p.m. when it left the roadway to the right, then crossed both lanes and left the roadway to the left, continued down an embankment and came to rest on its top in the water, the Washington State Patrol reports.

It happened 4.8 miles north of Coulee City.

Kononewski, who had worn a seatbelt, was taken to Coulee Medical Center but died later at Sacred Heart Medical Center in Spokane.

Her passenger, Viktor Lokhmatov, 74, of Everett, Washington, died at the scene. He had not been wearing a seatbelt, the patrol stated.

The WSP is investigating to determine the cause.
