Bodies of man and woman found in car upside down in Lewis County drainage ditch

The Centralia Chronicle reports that the bodies of a man and a woman have been found in a car that was upside down in a water-filled drainage ditch just west of Centralia in Lincoln Creek Valley. Centralia is a city off of the Interstate 5 south of Olympia, WA.

According to the report, motorists in a passing pickup truck heard a dog barking and they stopped to investigate. The motorists found the dog trapped inside the Pontiac Firebird along with the two dead occupants. Police theorize that the vehicle was traveling southbound when the driver lost control on the muddy road, and the car careened across the road and upside down into the ditch. The ditch is very narrow and the driver and passenger would have been unable to open the car doors.

Police believe they know who was in the car and will release the names after they notify the next-of-kin.
