Deadly Crash Near Deer Park

KHQ.COM - Spokane Sheriff's patrol and traffic deputies responded to the north 27800 block of Cedar Rd. just south of Owens Rd. (approx. 2 miles southeast of Deer Park) on the report of a single vehicle versus tree collision. 

A motorist driving by the area found a 2008 Chevrolet Avalanche crashed up against a tree located just off the roadway and called 911. Sheriff's deputies arrived on scene within six minutes of the call and found the driver, who was the only occupant of the vehicle, without a pulse. Shortly after medics arrived on the scene, the 45-year-old driver and Deer Park resident was pronounced dead.

The initial investigation and scene evidence show that the Chevy pickup truck was southbound on Cedar Rd traveling around the speed limit and left the roadway for some unknown reason.  It was lightly snowing at the time, but slick conditions didn't appear to be a factor.   

The truck drove off the roadway and followed the shoulder of the road for around 150 feet until it struck a large tree head-on. All of the airbags in the vehicle deployed.  However, the driver was not wearing his seatbelt. 

 A Spokane Sheriff's Chaplain is currently still working on making family notifications. The name of the driver will likely be released after notification has been done and the autopsy completed.

The investigation into the crash continues. It is unknown whether or not drugs or alcohol played a factor into the collision. Traffic investigators will have to wait about a month to receive the toxicology results back from the state toxicology laboratory in Seattle once they are received from the Spokane County Medical Examiner's office.
