Fatal Collision Kills Teen in Moses Lake
A Moses Lake teen lost his life in a two-vehicle fatal collision on Road L in Moses Lake Friday night.
At 11:20 p.m., 18-year-old Mario A. Rodriguez Jr. was going eastbound on Road 4-NE in a 1997 Mercedes.
The Mercedes was struck by a 2002 Ford F-250 after Rodriguez missed the stop sign on Road L-NE.
Rodriguez was found dead at the scene.
The 55-year-old Ford driver was Michael Kralman from Snohomish, who declined medical care at the scene.
“[Kralman] said he would seek medical care from his provider at a later date,” Grant County Sheriff’s Office Spokesperson Kyle Foreman said.
18-year-old Taylor K. Davidson was a passenger in the Mercedes and was taken to Samaritan Healthcare with non-life-threatening injuries.
Rodriguez’s body is currently with Grant County Coroner Craig Morrison for an autopsy.
The cause of the collision is currently under investigation.
Road L was closed for two hours.
