VANCOUVER -- One woman was killed in a Vancouver crash early Saturday morning and another later died at a local hospital, police said.

Police were called just before 2 a.m. to the report of a crash near Southeast McGillivray Boulevard and Southeast Olympia Drive, said Vancouver police spokeswoman Kim Kapp.

Responding officers found a pickup wrapped around a tree and light pole, Kapp said. Two women were inside the truck. The driver, 32-year-old Julie E. Deming of Vancouver, was dead when crews arrived.

The passenger, 21-year-old Brittney K. Deter of Vancouver, was taken to a nearby hospital with critical injuries. Police said Monday morning that Deter died of the injuries she suffered in the crash.

The Vancouver Police Traffic Unit is investigating and at this time excessive speed and possibly alcohol were factors in the collision, Kapp said.
