It happened at about 11:30 a.m. Tuesday in the small town of Vader, which is south of Chehalis.
Investigators say it appears the 70-year-old driver was traveling at a high rate of speed and he didn’t stop at a stop sign. He slammed into a concrete wall and was killed upon impact.
A dog in the vehicle is being treated for a possible broken back.
The victim’s name will be released once family has been notified.
