On March 6, at 3:01pm, deputies were dispatched to an injury collision in the 20400 block of Nisqually Rd SW near DuPont. 911 callers reported that a vehicle went off the road and down an embankment.

When deputies arrived, they located a small SUV, which was down a steep embankment and resting against a tree. The driver, a 21-year-old female, was deceased inside the vehicle.
