Puyallup woman killed in crash west of Orting

A Puyallup woman was killed early Sunday after crossing double yellow lines while attempting to pass. Her car collided with an oncoming truck on state Route 162 near Orting, according to the Washington State Patrol.

The 24-year-old, who was eastbound on Route 162 about 1 mile west of Orting about 12:30 a.m., died at the scene of the crash, according to a State Patrol news release. She was not wearing a seat belt.

Pierce County medical examiners identified the woman as Deandra Fegurgur.

The 23-year-old driver of the westbound pickup truck was injured and taken to Good Samaritan Hospital in Puyallup, the release said. His injuries were not life-threatening, State Patrol spokesman Todd Bartolac said.

It has not been determined whether alcohol was a factor in the crash, Bartolac said, though toxicology tests will be performed.

There will be no criminal charges regarding the crash, Bartolac said.
