THE TRUCK DRIVER WASN'T INJURED IN THE CRASH
Washington State Patrol Troopers say semi-truck driver 43-year-old Danny Ellingford was traveling westbound in a UPS truck when he crossed over the centerline and crashed into a Kia Optima with five people riding in the vehicle. Ellingford wasn't injured but 40-year-old Justin Poole and his 10-year-old daughter were killed. 27-year-old Machaela Buckholdt also died at Harborview Medical Center in Seattle. 36-year-old Nicole Poole and a 6-year-old child are both also being treated at Harborview Medical Center.
TRAGEDY STRUCK WHEN LIFE WAS GOOD
The GoFundMe page says Nicole and Justin were "sweethearts forever." It says "they're both some of the kindest, most caring people you could ever meet. They were a perfect family of four but tragedy struck on the early morning of 3/16/23 when they were traveling over I-90."
