A 55-year-old Spokane Valley woman died in a one-car collision early Monday that blocked one lane of westbound I-90 at North Argonne Road briefly, the Washington State Patrol said.

Paulette Siebenforcher was pronounced dead at Sacred Heart Medical Center this morning, according to a news release. The 1994 Kia sedan she was driving entered the highway shortly after 7 a.m. and crossed all three lanes of westbound traffic, colliding with the center median, according to the WSP.

Siebenforcher was wearing a seat belt and the incident appears to have been caused by a medical condition, according to the news release.

Crews were on-scene for about an hour, blocking one lane of traffic. The roadway is back open.
