The crash happened last Saturday night when a 2011 Mastercraft heading south near Threemile Point crashed into a 1989 Formula 223LS  that the Sheriff's Department says was either stationary or northbound at the time. Five adults on the Mastercraft were taken to the hospital for non-life threatening injuries. They were released. The Sheriff's Office identified them as Dennis D. Magner, 50 years old of Spokane, WA, Jonathan C. Sweat, 40 years old of Spokane, WA, Alejanero M. Gutierriz, 33 years old of Arlington, WA, Skye S.
