Sunnyside man dead after 3-car accident near Mattawa

Troopers say at around 3pm Tuesday, a Dodge Sprinter and a Volkswagen Jetta were heading northbound on state route 243, 11 miles south of Mattawa.

The Jetta was slowing for traffic ahead, when the Sprinter rear-ended the Jetta and sent it into the southbound lane.

A Toyota Prius traveling southbound hit the Jetta head on, killing 63-year-old Antonio Magana, who was a passenger in that Jetta.

Five other people were injured in the accident, and were taken to a local hospital.
