The Grant County Sheriff's office reports that around 4:30am, a multi-car crash has claimed the lives of at least 3 people.

Multiple sources, including the Grant County Sheriff, KNDU-TV and Fox 11 Tri-Cities report the crash occurred South of Quincy WA, and West of Vantage. It was near the intersection of Adams Road South and Frenchman Road. The collision was about 5 miles South of George, WA.

Authorities say Adams road will be closed in that area much of the day.  An SUV with just the driver aboard collided with a full size van near that intersection, causing the van to leave the road. It rolled, ejecting several occupants.

At least three people in the van died, numerous other persons were injured and taken to various hospitals. More information expected to be released today, Thursday.
