ELLENSBURG — A Cheney motorist died early Tuesday in a single-vehicle accident after her car went off I-90 near Ellensburg.

Washington State Patrol troopers said Virginia L. Baker, 55, was pronounced dead at the scene. She was the sole occupant of the eastbound blue 2013 Dodge Durango when it left the roadway near milepost 122, seven miles east of Kittitas.

The SUV traveled off the right side of the highway and through a fence, coming to rest on its wheels at the base of a small embankment.

The cause of the crash remained under investigation.
