SPOKANE COUNTY, Wash. -

One person was killed and two others were injured following a bad crash on Highway 395, one mile north of Spokane city limits Saturday night.

The crash happened just after 8 p.m. in Spokane County. According to Washington State Patrol, a 2005 Dodge Magnum driven by 29-year-old Ramiro Sanchez was speeding northbound on Highway 395 when he made a left turn into a maroon 1997 Eagle Talon car, traveling southbound. 

The Dodge came to rest on the southbound shoulder. The Eagle Talon ended up in a southbound ditch.  Two teens were in the Eagle Talon. Troopers say the driver of the car was killed on the scene. The passenger, also a juvenile, was airlifted by Medstar helicopter to Sacred Heart Medical Center. The passenger's condition is not known as of Sunday morning.

Because the teens are juveniles, their names and ages have not yet been released.

Sanchez's passenger, 23-year-old Jessica Rogers, was also injured in the crash and taken by ambulance to Holy Family hospital. Sanchez was not hurt.

Washington State Patrol reports the cause of the crash was DUI and that Sanchez has been charged with vehicular homicide.
