According to the News Tribune's Craig Sailor, Chyna J. Thomas, 22, was pronounced dead at the scene of the accident after the 1998 Toyota Camry careened into a barrier after the car drifted into the shoulder.
"That vaulted the vehicle head-on into the sign post," State Patrol spokesman Trooper Nick King said, per Sailor.
According to Washington State Patrol, Thomas was not wearing a seat belt at the time of the accident.
"We are terribly saddened by the tragic loss of Chyna Thomas," the Celtics said in a statement Saturday, according to ESPN.com's Chris Forsberg. "The thoughts and prayers of the entire Celtics organization are with Isaiah and his family."
