On August 9, 2016, just prior to 4:00 p.m., Spokane County Sheriff’s Deputies responded to the report of a head-on collision in the 8000 block of East Upriver Drive.
Initial information from the scene is a black Honda passenger car traveling west crossed over the centerline and struck a black Kia SUV traveling east, head-on.
The adult male driver of the Honda died of his injuries. The adult female driver of the SUV received what appear to be non-life threatening injuries and was transported to a local hospital for medical attention.
Spokane County Sheriff’s Office Collision Investigators were called to the scene to investigate the cause of the collision. At this time, investigators do not believe impairment or speed to be factors.
The Spokane County Medical Examiner’s Office will release the name of the deceased at a later date.
