Pregnant woman killed when son backs over her in minivan

A Dayton woman dies following a rollover accident this evening on State Route 124 at Bolles Road in Walla Walla County.

Troopers say 79-year-old Lenora Richards was driving her 1996 Dodge Ram pickup westbound on State Route 124 when she struck a guardrail at Bolles Road.

Richards’s pickup jumped the guardrail and rolled 15 feet down and embankment and came to rest on its top. She died at the scene.

The cause of the accident is under investigation, but troopers say drugs or alcohol did not play a factor and that Richard’s was wearing a seatbelt.
