Media sources reported that three people sustained minor and severe injuries in a two-vehicle collision near Airway Heights on Highway 2 Tuesday night.
According to the Washington State Patrol, the accident happened at roughly 7:30pm near Flint Road just outside of Airway Heights on Highway 2 Tuesday night involving two sedans. While an investigation is still underway, authorities have stated that one of the passenger vehicles failed to yield to westbound oncoming traffic while attempting to make a left turn onto Flint Road. The two vehicles collided in a t-bone collision. The turning vehicle was thrown off of the roadway and into a nearby ditch.
Emergency crews arrived shortly thereafter and had to extricate the sole occupant of the vehicle thrown into the ditch by removing a section of the vehicle’s roof. The driver was then transported to a nearby hospital for the treatment of serious but non-life threatening injuries. The two occupants of the other vehicle sustained minor injuries in the accident and were treated and released at the scene.
Washington State Patrol officials are still investigating the accident, but have stated that they do not believe drugs or alcohol played contributing roles in this incident.
