SUNDAY, NOV. 7, 2010

A 1-year-old Colville girl injured in a crash Friday on U.S. Highway 395 at Addy, Wash., has died.

Jalah Jones was a passenger in a car driven by Jenie Jones, of Colville, that was rear-ended about 2 p.m. Friday. The girl died Saturday morning at Providence Sacred Heart Medical Center, the Washington State Patrol said.

Jones, 26, was driving north on the highway in a 1990 Mercury Sable when she stopped to turn left into a driveway and was hit from behind by a 2005 Suzuki Verona driven by Kimberley A. Moorhead, 35, of Colville.

Jones and the child were airlifted to Sacred Heart on Friday; the woman remained in satisfactory condition Saturday night. A boy in the Sable, 3-year-old Joshua Jones, was taken to St. Joseph’s Hospital in Chewelah, but his condition was not known.

Moorhead was not injured. She faces a charge of second-degree negligent driving, the WSP reported.
