A 16-year-old Lewiston girl is dead and a 20-year-old man is being held at the Asotin County Jail on pending charges of vehicular homicide and vehicular assault after a rollover accident on Mail Route Road west of the Clarkston Heights Saturday night.

Ashley Nelson died at the scene from injuries received when she was ejected from the pickup truck during the crash, Asotin County Sheriff Ken Bancroft said, and Gilberto Alex Garcia was later taken into custody after deputies and rescue personnel responded at about 10:40 p.m.

Garcia was allegedly driving the 2002 truck before the single-vehicle accident. Nelson and another girl were riding in the pickup truck with Garcia and another man, according to police.

Garcia and the other girl were taken to St. Joseph Regional Medical Center by Lewiston paramedics. Bancroft said Garcia was arrested after being treated and released, but he did not know the other girl’s condition.
