WSP: 2 Killed, Hundreds Injured On Roads In Winter Storm

SPOKANE, Wash. - Two people were killed and more than 700 people were injured in the first 24 hours of the winter storm system moving across Washington, according to the Washington State Patrol.

Trooper Troy Briggs told KHQ's Dave Cotton on KHQ.com's 'NewsBreak' that from 9 a.m. Tuesday to 9 a.m. Wednesday, there were two deaths on Washington highways and 726 people were injured.

"That's only the start of it," Trooper Briggs told Cotton. "Unfortunately, we expect those numbers to continue to rise."  

The fatalities were on State Route 410 just East of Bonney Lake, near Tacoma, and on SR 97A two miles west of Entiat.  

In Spokane County alone, there were 30 crashes on Wednesday morning, but there were no serious injuries. A three-car crash on the TJ Meenach Bridge in northwest Spokane (pictured) caused a traffic backup of nearly one mile on Ft. George Wright Drive, past Spokane Falls Community College, during the lunch hour. One person had to be extricated from a vehicle and two people were hospitalized with minor injuries.
