The crash victim may have been run over after being thrown from her car onto the highway.
The crash is being investigated as a possible fatal hit-and-run.
Emily Allen, 23, of Soap Lake, Wash., was driving a 2002 Ford F150 pickup south on Highway 17 four miles north of Moses Lake at 4 a.m. Sunday, according to the Washington State Patrol.
Her pickup crossed the centerline onto the northbound shoulder, hit the embankment and rolled, and came to a rest facing north.
