Spokane woman killed when car rolled off I-90 on-ramp overpass Saturday morning

UPDATED: Sun., July 5, 2020

A Spokane woman was killed in a single-car crash on westbound I-90 early Saturday morning, according to the Washington State Patrol.

Jasmyne Travis, 21, was entering the Sprague on-ramp to westbound I-90 around 3 a.m. Saturday, according to a WSP memo. She failed to negotiate the on-ramp curve, causing her car to roll off the overpass and come to a rest on the westbound Sprague off-ramp below.

Travis was ejected 30 feet from her car onto the left shoulder of the off-ramp, the memo said. She died at the scene. 

Drugs or alcohol are suspected to be a factor in the crash, according to WSP. Travis was not wearing a seatbelt.
