Local woman dies in crash

A 70-year-old Nespelem woman died Friday night when the car she was driving rolled on the highway just north of Coulee Dam.

Gloria Atkins, 70, was headed north on SR-155 when the wheels of the Chevy Equinox she was driving left the roadway on the right. She corrected, turning left, then once again to the right before the vehicle rolled, a Washington State Patrol investigation found.

It came to rest on its top on the northbound shoulder.

Atkins was wearing a seatbelt.

The wreck happened about 7:30 p.m.
