In the early morning hours of May 31, a car broke through a guardrail along eastbound Interstate 90 near Exit 31 in North Bend and dropped 50 feet down into a wooded embankment, killing the 32-year-old driver, Kevin G. Colello of North Bend, and passenger, 28-year-old Corrie D. Harley. Washington State Patrol said neither was wearing a seat belt; Colello was ejected from the 2000 Acura Integra upon crash impact. Officials said the accident could have occurred up to 10 hours prior to being reported at 7:49 a.m. as the bodies and the vehicle were almost completely obscured by undergrowth and trees. According to the State Patrol, the car hit the right guardrail and then crossed the freeway to go through the left guardrail, heading down the embankment toward the westbound lanes. There were no obvious signs of alcohol involvement but police are awaiting results of toxicology reports. There are no known witnesses at this time and the case is still under investigation.
