PIERCE COUNTY: Woman’s death in car rollover linked to drugs or alcohol

Posted on Nov 19, 2008

Here's a case where an impaired driver caused a fatal accident.  Fortunately, no one else was injured or killed.  With the
holiday season upon us, we need to be extra careful to look out for drivers who are driving under the influence (DUI) of alcohol and/or drugs.

An Ashford woman was killed in a one-car accident between Graham and Eatonville on Friday night, the Washington State Patrol reported Saturday.

Corey Morford, 23, was speeding on southbound Highway 161 near Kapowsin Highway when her 1993 Honda Civic hit a light pole. The car then rolled, hit a tree and came to rest upside-down.

Morford died at the scene. She was wearing her seat belt, but drugs or alcohol were involved, the report said.
