Valleyford man who died in crash identified

Staff and wire reports

A man who died this weekend in a Palouse Highway car crash has been identified as 54-year-old Randy C. Prouty of Valleyford.

Prouty’s car failed to negotiate a right-hand curve, left the road and rolled an estimated five times.

Sheriff’s investigators say Prouty was alone at the time of the one-car crash on the Palouse Highway near Sands Road, south of Spokane.

The accident happened between midnight and 6 a.m. Saturday, when sheriff’s deputies responded to the scene.

Speed and alcohol appeared to be factors in the accident, said Sgt. Dave Reagan, of the Spokane County Sheriff’s Office.
