An 87-year-old man died and two others were hospitalized after a car crash Monday afternoon in Omak.

Layton, who lived in Riverside, a few miles north of Omak, was pronounced dead at Mid-Valley Hospital shortly after the crash.

The driver of the Tahoe, David W. Raymond, 71, of Oroville, was airlifted to Providence Sacred Heart Medical Center. His passenger, Joanie E. Raymond, 66, of Oroville, was taken to Mid-Valley Hospital. Their conditions were not immediately available Monday evening.
