[ARCHIVED] Traffic Unit Investigates Single-Vehicle, Fatal Crash on S. Cheney Spokane Road

Traffic Unit Investigates Single-Vehicle, Fatal Crash on S. Cheney Spokane Road 

Spokane County Sheriff’s Office Traffic Unit Investigators work to determine what caused a single-vehicle, fatal crash early Saturday morning.  The driver, and sole occupant of the vehicle, was pronounced deceased at the scene.  

On January 21, 2023, at approximately 3:05 am, Spokane County Deputies responded to the report of a one-vehicle rollover crash in the 15200 block of S. Cheney Spokane Road.   The incident was reported by a Cheney Police Officer who came upon the Dodge pickup resting on its top on the east side of the roadway.  

Arriving Deputies noted the adult male driver was still inside the vehicle, which had sustained severe damage during the crash.  Cheney Fire personnel pronounced the driver deceased at the scene.  

Spokane County Sheriff’s Office Traffic Unit Investigators were called to the scene to continue the investigation.  

Initial information indicates the vehicle was traveling north, in the 15200 block of S. Cheney Spokane Road, when the driver failed to negotiate the curve.  The Dodge truck left the roadway, rolled, and struck a tree.   Speed is believed to be a factor in this fatal crash, and the driver was not wearing a seatbelt.  Investigators are also working to ascertain if impairment was also a factor.  

SIRT Team volunteers responded to assist with traffic control while Cheney Spokane Road was closed during the investigation.
