The two passengers in the Thunderbird, 40-year-old Christian Schuermann of Moses Lake and his 13-year-old female passenger were killed in the crash.
The road was blocked for over four hours while Troopers conducted an investigation. At this point, it is unknown if drugs or alcohol were a factor and charges may be pending.
