A box truck driver is facing multiple charges after ignoring a stop sign in Washington on Wednesday afternoon. 

The accident happened on August 11th in Grant County, Washington. 

According to KEPR News, 37-year-old Christopher J. Crisostomo was driving a box truck north on Adams Road near State Route 283 when he failed to stop at a stop sign. The box truck subsequently struck a moving car with the right-of-way on the driver’s side, and both vehicles came to a stop in the northwest corner of the intersection. 

The 31-year-old motorist, Rigoberto Marmolejo-Garcia and his passenger, an unnamed 52-year-old man, were killed in the impact.
