Man flown to hospital after being hit by own vehicle

MEAD, Wash.- A 50-year-old Mead, Washington man is in critical condition today after his disabled Ford Bronco was struck from behind and he was trapped beneath it on Day-Mt. Spokane Road Wednesday night.

According to sheriff's office traffic investigators, Timothy Carl Jackson was working at the front of his disabled dark green Ford in the eastbound lane of the roadway about 9:50 p.m. The area is unlighted and investigation indicates there were no lights or flashers working on the Ford at the time.

An eastbound Honda Accord driven by 21-year-old Cameron James Stevenson struck the Ford in the rear, knocking it forward and into Jackson who was thrown underneath and dragged.

The Ford moved about 100 feet from the point of impact and Jackson was trapped beneath it.  He suffered serious head injuries and was airlifted to a downtown hospital where he was listed in critical condition in the Intensive Care Unit.

Jackson's wife was inside the Ford at the time of the crash, but was uninjured.  Stevenson suffered minor head injuries from striking the windshield.  He was not wearing a seatbelt at the time of the crash.

The collision remains under investigation.

    SPOKANE, Wash. - Initiative-1639 has been the root of controversy ever since supporters began asking for signatures. It became even more complicated when the Washington Supreme Court overturned a Thurston County judges decision after the judge initially threw out over 300,000 signatures saying the petition didn't follow election law claiming it was unreadable.
