High-speed crash injures three teenagers, one critically

SPOKANE VALLEY, Wash. - Three male teenagers were injured, one critically, when their car went out of control and crashed on Argonne Road about 3:35 a.m. Wednesday.

Witnesses told sheriff's traffic investigators that alcohol and speed were involved in the crash that closed Argonne north of Bigelow Gulch for several hours.

Traffic investigator Mike Brooks said the three were in a 1993 Mazda Protégé driven by Harley M. Sumner, 17.  The trio left Bigelow Gulch Road northbound on Argonne where the road is posted for a maximum 45 mph.

However, a witness attempting to follow the Mazda told investigators she accelerated up to 60 mph before she quit trying to keep up with the Protege.

The Mazda entered a slight curve and the right rear tire left the pavement onto the east shoulder.  Sumner apparently attempted to correct, but the car went into a slide and skidded across the southbound lane.  The vehicle left the roadway on the southbound side, went airborne for about 60 feet and crashed into an embankment and trees.

Investigators said there was no evidence that any of the three occupants were wearing seat-belts.  Sumner ended up in the back seat and suffered a broken arm.

He has been arrested for two counts of Vehicular Assault.  The two passengers, one 17 and the other 18, suffered unspecified injuries.

The collision remains under investigation.
