One dead, one injured in Medical Lake rollover

One man is dead and his wife is in serious condition after they rolled their SUV off a dirt road in Medical Lake Thursday night, according to a KHQ report.

The woman reportedly is the daughter Medical Lake Mayor John Higgins, said Spokane County Sheriff’s Office spokesman Dave Reagan.

Jerod Hoeche, 30, and Amanda Hoeche, 28, were ejected from the vehicle as it rolled about 300 feet off West Leyn Road about 8:30 p.m., Reagan said. Jerod Hoeche reportedly was driving too fast on the gravel road and lost control, Reagan said. Alcohol was a factor in the crash, he added.

Amanda Hoeche was pinned beneath a rear tire of the vehicle. First responders had to lift the SUV to get her out.

Both were transported by ambulance to Sacred Heart Medical Center. Amanda Hoeche was reported in satisfactory condition there today.
