SPOKANE, Wash. - The Washington State Patrol have identified the driver killed in a collision with a snow plow on Hwy. 195 near Mullan Hill on Tuesday night. His name is 57-year-old William Adsit of Spangle.

Witnesses say Adsit was wearing his seatbelt at the time of the crash but was going too fast when he hit the back of the snow plow which was parked.  Immediately upon impact his truck burst into flames.

The driver of the plow was outside the vehicle moving a dead deer at the time of the collision and was not injured.

So far there are no indications that the plow driver did anything wrong. Troopers say he was legally pulled off to the side of the road with his flashers on and that Adsit just did not see him.

We spoke with Eastern Washington Department of Transportation Spokesman Al Gilson. He told us this is a tragic accident that serves as a reminder to everyone to be aware and cautious.

Gilson also confirmed the plow driver was doing everything right.
