WSP identifies fatality victim of Highway 27 crash

SPOKANE COUNTY, Wash.- Washington State Patrol troopers have identified the person killed Tuesday night in a crash on Highway 27 just after 8 p.m.

Troopers say 36-year-old Bryce Skinner was killed when his car collided with another car on the highway near Freeman, that's in south Spokane County.

According to WSP, Skinner was heading north on the highway and crossed the center line for an unknown reason, hitting a van driving being driven by 52 year-old Cynthia LeDeaux.

There were five people in the other vehicle, including two girls under ten. All five were taken to Sacred Heart Medical Center. WSP said the driver, Cynthia LeDeaux, sustained the most serious injuries and had to be airlifted by Med-Star. Her injuries are said to be non-life threatening.  The passengers' injuries were also reported as non-life threatening and the two children only received minor injuries.

Bryce Skinner was the only one in his vehicle when the incident happened. He was pronounced dead at the scene. Highway 27 was shut down for about four hours and WSP reopened the roadway just after midnight Wednesday morning.

Right now WSP is saying that drugs and alcohol were probably not involved.
