A man was killed Wednesday night after losing control of his truck after passing a car on state Route 155 in Okanogan County.
The Washington State Patrol said Richard L. Howe, 62, driving a 2004 Ford F-350, was traveling northbound when he lost control near milepost 60.
Troopers said Howe’s truck fishtailed multiple times, then left the roadway on the southbound shoulder before striking two trees and coming to a rest on its top.
Troopers said he was driving too fast for conditions.
