The Washington State Patrol says two people are dead after their pickup landed upside-down in the Little Naches River east of Mount Rainier.

William A. Retterer Jr., 44, and Sherri N. Retterer, 43, from Burbank in Walla Walla County, were on Little Naches Road when their truck left the road and wound up in the river late Saturday night. The woman was found in the car and the man's body was discovered about a mile and a half downstream.

Investigators say it's not clear who had been driving or what caused the crash.
