A young Grand Coulee woman died Saturday after a one-car rollover crash about five miles south of Grand Coulee around 1 p.m.
Tavian Beasley, 27, had been driving a 1997 Chevrolet Blazer south on SR-155 when the SUV drove onto the shoulder. She overcorrected, drove into the northbound lane, and overcorrected again, according to the Washington State Patrol. The car rolled at milepost 20 and Beasley was ejected. She had not been wearing a seatbelt, the WSP report indicated.
Beasley was taken to Coulee Medical Center where she was later pronounced dead.
Following a vacation to visit her mother and stepfather in Grand Coulee, Beasley had moved to the area at the age of 26, along with her pets, according to her obituary on page four of this issue. She had spent this summer working at Steamboat Rock State Park, hiking and kayaking with her friends, family, and dogs.
