Two Dead In High Speed Car Crash; Alcohol Believed To Be A Factor

Spokane Valley Police Department Press Release:

SPOKANE VALLEY, Wash. - Spokane Valley collision investigators were called to the scene of a double fatal collision at 7:05 p.m. Tuesday evening near the 9500 block of E. Broadway Rd.  Investigators determined a vehicle, occupied by an adult male and female, was driving westbound on Broadway Ave. at a high rate of speed. 

Evidence at the scene showed the vehicle left the roadway and struck a small tree and telephone pole before striking a large tree head-on. Neither occupants were wearing seatbelts at the time of the collision. Both occupants were pronounced dead at the scene.  

Investigators believe alcohol and speed were both factors in the collision. The identity of both occupants will be released at a later date by the Medical Examiner's Office. The investigation is ongoing.
