Woman killed in head-on collision

SPOKANE, Wash. - One woman was killed Wednesday afternoon in a head-on collision on Highway 2 near Shady Slope. Two others were sent to the hospital with injuries following the collision that occurred just after 4:30 p.m.

The Washington State Patrol says 22-year-old Camera Cox was driving a 1995 Nissan Altima, southbound on Highway 2 when she crossed the center line and collided head-on with a northbound 1998 Toyota Camry.  Cox was taken to Holy Family Medical Center with minor injuries.  She told Washington State Patrol officers that she was racing to get her sick cat to the vet.  Officers say they were unable to locate her cat at the scene.

Margaret Brabant of Sault Sainte Marie, the 69-year-old passenger in the Camry, was killed in the crash. The driver of the Camry, 61-year-old man Timothy Kelley of Gallup New Mexico, was taken to Sacred Heart Medical Center with critical injuries.  WSP says Barbant and Kelley are brother and sister.

Highway 2 near Shady Slope remained closed until 7 p.m. Troopers diverted northbound traffic to Market via Farwell and southbound traffic to Market via Mt. Spokane.

WSP is investigating the crash, and charges are pending.
