The Washington State Patrol continues to investigate the early morning accident that killed a 43-year-old Richland woman who was ejected from the car.

Authorities say the car, driven by 48-year-old Robert King, was eastbound on I-182 near the Road 100 exit around 8:35 a.m. when it veered off the road, rolled several times, and ejected Cynthia Bynum. WSP troopers said she was pronounced dead at the scene, according to KNDU-TV.

King was taken to Kadlec Regional Medical Center in Richland, where he was last listed in stable condition. Sources say alcohol or drugs may have played a factor in the crash.  Officials did not say if any charges were pending against the driver. King was wearing a seatbelt at the time of the crash, said the state patrol.
