QUINCY, Wash. -- A 61-year-old man was killed in a crash Friday afternoon just east of Quincy.
Grant County Sheriff officials said Genaro Vazquez Visoso, 32, was driving south on Road K-Northwest at a high speed around 3:00 p.m. and failed to stop at the intersection with Road 9-Northwest. Deputies said Vazquez hit Kelly Norris, 61, who was driving east on Road 9.
