PATEROS - Dr. Arthur Himmler, superintendent of the Omak School District, was killed in an early morning crash Thursday about two miles south of Pateros.

Himmler was driving south on Highway 97 at about 7:06 a.m. when he attempted to pass a vehicle. According to a Washington State Patrol report, he lost control of his 2008 Ford F150 pickup while in the northbound lane. Himmler was thrown from the truck when it rolled and came to a rest on its top. Whether he was wearing his seat belt is unknown.

Himmler, 68, was pronounced dead at the scene, said the State Patrol report. The cause of the crash was cited as speed too fast for conditions.

He had served as Omak's superintendent for three years.
