PRESS RELEASE FROM THE SPOKANE COUNTY SHERIFF'S OFFICE: On Friday evening, July 26, 2013, at approximately 7:15 p.m., Spokane County Sheriff's Office Collision Investigators responded to a two-car collision near 9500 W. Seven Mile Road in Spokane County. 

For reasons unknown at this time, the driver of a 4-door 1995 Acura crossed the center line and was hit by a 1999 Ford F250 pickup truck. Both vehicles had three occupants each. The occupants of the Ford received only minor injuries.  A 26-year-old male was the front seat passenger of the Acura. This male died as a result of the collision. 

A 21-year-old male was the rear, passenger side seat passenger. He was initially listed in critical condition at the hospital, but has since passed. The 24-year-old male driver sustained serious injuries and is also still hospitalized. 

At this time it does not appear impairment was a factor. Autopsies on both deceased passengers of the Acura were completed Monday and identification will be provided by the Spokane County Medical Examiner's Office. The investigation is ongoing.

    SPOKANE, Wash. - It's been an incredibly difficult couple of months for Kaley Hilderbrand and her family.

    A Spokane business owner says enough is enough after finding human feces in front of her doorstep three days in a row. The incidences happened at Neat Old Stuff located at 3rd and Bernard. The shop's owner, CP Phare, has been in the same location for the last decade and says suspicious activity has ramped up in the last year, but nothing like what's been happening over the last few days. "There's like surprise packages usually two-to-three times a week,"
