UPDATE: Two People Killed In Crash At Trent And Starr

UPDATE: A man and woman from Rathdrum died Tuesday afternoon following a head-on accident in Otis Orchards.

The deceased victims are identified as James Arthur Jemison, 76, and Donette Lee Jemison, 57. They were declared dead at the scene after their GMC Yukon hit a Peterbilt semi head-on, according to the Washington State Patrol.

James Jemison was driving east on Trent Road shortly before 4 p.m. when his 2005 Yukon drifted across the centerline at Starr Road, the WSP said. The Yukon hit a westbound 1993 Peterbilt tractor driven by Gregory Russell Malloy, 52, of Otis Orchards.

All parties were wearing seat belts. Malloy was not injured.

Drugs and alcohol were not a factor.

No charges are anticipated, the WSP said.

KHQ.COM - On Tuesday emergency crews responded to a deadly crash at Trent and Starr in the Otis Orchards area. 

Washington State Troopers say the crash was between a semi-truck and a pickup and two people were killed as a result of the crash. Eastbound Trent was closed but has since re-opened.

The cause is still under investigation, but witnesses say a white pickup turned into a semi-truck that was heading west on Trent. Deputies say at this time, it appears that the truck was not turning onto Trent, but that the two collided head-on.

The semi-truck driver was not injured, and the two victims in the pickup truck have not been identified, but we are told they are an elderly couple from Idaho.
