Passenger killed in I-90 rollover crash

An Interstate 90 rollover accident triggered by the loss of a vehicle’s right rear wheel killed a Grandview woman Saturday evening.

Donita Kay Sandberg, 63, was a passenger in an eastbound 1986 Chevrolet Suburban driven by her husband, David Charles Sandberg, also 63, who lost control when the wheel came off near the Geiger interchange. The vehicle veered into the ditch and rolled at least twice, the Washington State Patrol said.

Donita Sandberg died at the scene. David Sandberg was taken to Providence Sacred Heart Medical Center, where his injuries were described as non-critical. Both were wearing seat belts.
