Authorities: Alcohol & Speed Factors In Deadly Late Night Crash In N. Spokane

OFFICIAL SPOKANE COUNTY RELEASE: Once again speeding and alcohol are factors in a late night collision that took the life of a 42-year-old Spokane female.

The Spokane County Sheriff's Office responded to the east 2600 block of Magnesium Rd around 11 p.m Friday night on the report of a vehicle verses tree collision.

Through their initial investigation sheriff traffic investigators learned that 26-year-old Lyle Eutsler of Spokane was operating a 1994 Mazda MX6 car at a high rate of speed while driving eastbound on Magnesium Rd. 

There were two other female occupants in the vehicle at the time of the collision, a 21 and 42-year-old.

A witness told investigators the Mazda passed them at a high rate of speed further back west of the scene. 

Traffic investigators said as the Mazda approached the S-curves located before Market St, the vehicle lost control. 

The Mazda left the roadway on the north side of Magnesium and struck a large tree. 

The right front 21-year-old occupant only received minor injuries. 

However, the left rear 42-year-old occupant received life threatening injuries and was pronounced dead shortly after arriving at a local hospital. 

The driver sustained a collapsed lung due to the crash and is in serious condition at a local hospital, but is expected to survive.

Apparently, the Mazda occupants were coming from a mutual friend's birthday party. 

Traffic investigators learned Lyle Eutsler had been drinking prior to the collision and subsequently arrested him for vehicular homicide. 

A legal blood draw was obtained from Eutsler and will be sent to the Washington State Toxicology Laboratory in Seattle for analysis.  It will take approximately 6-8 weeks to get these results back.

While waiting for the blood results, traffic investigators will continue their investigation into the collision.

The Mazda was seized as evidence and criminal charges may be brought at a later date based upon the final results of the investigation. 

An autopsy is scheduled today for the female decedent. 

The name of victim will likely be released after the post mortem is completed.
