Cheney Crash Update: Man Charged With Vehicular Assault

UPDATE: On Monday the Spokane County Sheriff's Office Collision Investigators responded to a one-vehicle rollover collision at the 14000 block of South Murphy Rd. The driver, 35-year-old Heath Barden of Cheney Wa., was traveling northbound on Murphy Rd. and left the roadway as he came out of a curve. 

As Barden was attempting to negotiate his 2004 Mitsubishi Montero back onto the road the vehicle rolled at least two times before coming to rest on the driver's side. According to investigators, the scene was over 200 feet long indicating Barden was traveling in excess of the posted thirty-five mile an hour speed limit.

Barden had his 5-year-old son and 7-year-old daughter in the vehicle at the time of the collision. All occupants were properly restrained. Barden and his daughter received minor injuries however the 5-year-old had glass in one of his eyes and it was swollen shut. There was evidence at the scene to suggest Barden had been drinking prior to the collision. 

Due to the potential serious eye injury to the child, Barden was arrested for Vehicular Assault and a blood draw was completed. Child Protection Services was notified of the incident per the recent new law requiring such notification when DUI suspects are arrested with children in the vehicle.  The collision is still under investigation.
