Authorities identify man killed in Clayton crash


Authorities have released the identity of the driver killed in a three-car crash near Clayton Friday evening.

David Robison, 56, of Spokane, was pronounced dead at the scene of the 5:20 p.m. crash. He was westbound on Williams Valley Road in a Chevrolet Cavalier and stopped at the intersection with Highway 395, according to the Washington State Patrol. He then entered the highway, and was struck in the southbound lane by Andrea K. Hansen, 40, of Chewelah, who was driving a Chevrolet Tahoe.

The impact drove Hansen’s vehicle into the path of a third vehicle, a Ford F250 pickup driven by 17-year-old boy of Deer Park, and they collided in the northbound lane. That boy was injured and taken to Providence Holy Family Hospital.

Hensen and one of her passengers, a 15-year-old girl, also were taken to Providence Holy Family Hospital. Hansen’s third passenger, another 15-year-old girl, sustained minor injuries and was treated at the scene.

Authorities said alcohol was not a factor. All involved were wearing seatbelts.
