2 hospitalized after icy highway crash


A driver and passenger from Wilbur were airlifted to a Spokane hospital this morning after their Jeep lost control on icy Highway 2.

Jeanne L. Coker, 63, was westbound near milepost 233 in Lincoln County when her 1997 Jeep Cherokee lost control about 9:35 a.m. and rolled several times, according to the Washington State Patrol.

Coker and passenger Claude J. Coker, 66, were taken by MedStar to Providence Scared Heart Medical Center. Jeanne Coker remained in serious condition this evening.

She will be cited for driving too fast for conditions, WSP said.
