SPOKANE, Wash. - The Spokane County Sheriff's Office says speeding and alcohol are factors in an early morning collision that took the life of a 19-year-old Spokane woman. The Spokane County Sheriff's Office responded to 54th Ave and Hatch Rd around 2:24 a.m. Sunday to the report of a two-vehicle collision near that intersection.

Through their initial investigation, sheriff traffic investigators learned that 18-year-old Taylor Marean was operating a 2005 BMW passenger car at a high rate of speed and was racing with another vehicle southbound on Hatch Rd. 19-year-old Ryan Perrizo was an occupant in Marean's vehicle.

The other vehicle involved was a 1999 Pontiac Grand Am being driven by 18-year-old Brooke Reese. Reese tried to make a left hand turn at a high rate of speed, while at the same time Marean was attempting to pass her on the left. The two vehicles collided in a "T-bone" fashion and then slid off the roadway together striking a large pine tree.

The Pontiac struck the pine tree with its right side door killing the 19-year-old female right front passenger. Reese suffered minor lacerations and contusions from the crash and was treated and released from a local hospital. None of the occupants in the BMW received injuries.

Traffic investigators were told the occupants of both vehicles had been drinking at an earlier party. Blood draws were taken from both drivers and will be sent to the Washington State Toxicology Laboratory for analysis. It will take approximately a month to get these results back.

While waiting for the blood results, traffic investigators will continue their investigation into the early morning collision. Both vehicles were seized as evidence and criminal charges may be brought a later date based upon the final results of the investigation. An autopsy is scheduled for the female decedent on Tuesday, February 16.

The name of victim was not released by the Sheriff's Office, but friends and co-workers have identified the woman as 19-year-old Jacoby Bryant of Spokane.

    PULLMAN, Wash. - Six-year-old Denny Curran should be enjoying his last few days of summer before first grade. He should be teasing his brother, splashing in the pool, giving his parents a hard time about vegetables. Instead, Denny is dead, the victim of a horrific, freak bicycle accident that could happen to your child too. "Denny was an extraordinary child," his father Keith Curran told KHQ.
