FIRST ON KHQ.COM: WSP Trooper Crashes While Trying To Stop One-Way Driver On Hwy. 195

KHQ.COM - On Wednesday afternoon a Washington State Patrol trooper crashed while driving to stop a wrong-way driver on Hwy. 195 just 3 miles south of Spokane. Fortunately no one was injured.

The northbound lane was partially blocking for a short time, but it was opened shortly after.

This is the 4th wrong way crash on Hwy. 195 in as many months.

Since several of the crashes involved elderly drivers, we asked WSP troopers what may be contributing to the crashes, they say it's important for all drivers to get re-evaluated to ensure they are safe to be behind the wheel.

The crash happened around 2:30 on Wednesday afternoon on U.S. Highway 195. The northbound lane was partially blocking for a short time, but it was opened shortly after.
