Hockett was pronounced dead at the scene and her next of kin was notified. She was wearing her seatbelt at the time of the crash. Police say Hocket is from Cheney and Portland.
Washington State Patrol officers say that weather was a factor in the wreck. The driver of the Yukon, 41-year-old Kimberly Cole of Davenport, was transported to a hospital in Davenport with minor injuries.
