A 20-year-old Buckley woman died Sunday afternoon, the result of a two-vehicle collision in Eastern Washington.

Morgan K. Cope graduated in 2014 from White River High School and was a student at Washington State University.

According to a Washington State Patrol report, she died at the scene of the crash, about 16 miles west of the Whitman County town of Colfax.

The WSP report said Cope was headed west in a 2001 Toyota Camry when another vehicle crossed the centerline, causing the head-on accident. The incident occurred shortly before 2 p.m.

The other vehicle, a Toyota pickup, was driven by 18-year-old Jason Wigen, from the tiny community of La Crosse. He was airlifted to Providence Sacred Heart Medical Center in Spokane.
