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.

    SPOKANE, Wash. - "He told me to pull over, and my jaw just dropped," a Spokane woman, who says a fake police officer tried to pull her over, doesn't want to be named.

She tells me that she was driving around North Spokane at night on her way home from work.

    Man accused of assault after putting wife with dementia on leash

    Tuesday, September 18 2018 10:40 AM EDT2018-09-18 14:40:20 GMT

    A Maryland man is facing a simple assault charge after using a dog leash to lead his wife around a Pennsylvania fair because she has late-stage dementia.    West Manchester police say Walter Wolford yanked the 8-inch long red nylon leash, causing his wife's head to jerk back and leave red marks around her throat. But the 66-year-old Hagerstown man says he only gently tugged on the leash, which he uses to keep his wife from getting lost.
