The Spokesman-Review

A 22-year-old Washington State University nursing student was killed Friday after losing control of her vehicle while trying to pass other cars on two-lane Highway 195 north of Rosalia.

Kasey Nicole Skaggs, of Renton, Wash., was southbound on the highway about 1 p.m. when she attempted to pass three vehicles in a 2006 Chevrolet Cobalt, the Washington State Patrol said. While moving back into the southbound lane, the car slid broadside in the northbound lane and was struck by 2004 Chevrolet Cavalier.

That Cavalier’s driver, David M. Swanson, 47, and passenger, Bonnie L. Swanson, 46, both of Chewelah, were transported to Providence Sacred Heart Medical Center, where they were both listed in satisfactory condition Friday night, a nursing supervisor said.
