MOSES LAKE — Two women died on Monday in separate early-morning collisions near Moses Lake and Quincy.

In the Quincy fatality Loldgario Romero, 64, of Royal City, was driving a 1998 Honda Civic north on Adams Road North about 6 a.m. when he attempted to make a turn into a driveway in the 8500 block of Adams Road. Romero reportedly turned into the path of a southbound 2005 Nissan Altima driven by Ricardo Perez-Apolonia, 42, of Quincy and the two vehicles collided in the southbound lane, according to the Grant County Sheriff’s Office.

Romero’s passenger, Isidra Romero-Ramos, 68, of Royal City, died in the collision. Her body is now in the care of the Grant County Coroner’s Office, where an autopsy will be conducted. Loldgario Romero received head injuries and was initially taken to Quincy Valley Medical Center, but was later transferred to Confluence Health-Central Washington Hospital in Wenatchee. Perez-Apolonia received treatment for minor injuries at Quincy Valley Medical Center.

In the Moses Lake fatality Rosalia Zepeda, 41, of Othello, was reportedly driving a 2001 Dodge Neon north on Road L Northeast about 6:05 a.m. when her vehicle was struck by a 2013 Chevrolet Cruze driven by Carmen Ortega-Camacho, 49, of Warden, who was traveling east on Nelson Road. The sheriff’s office says Ortega-Camacho failed to stop at the stop sign at Nelson Road and Road L Northeast.

Zepeda passed away as she was being transported to the hospital. Her body is in the care of the Grant County Coroner’s Office, where an autopsy will be performed. Ortega-Camacho was treated at Samaritan Hospital in Moses Lake for minor injuries.

The sheriff’s office says neither alcohol nor drugs played a role in either of the collisions and all who were involved were wearing seat belts. The Grant County Sheriff’s Motor Traffic Unit is investigating the collisions.
