Teens airlifted after intoxicant-involved crash

Sat., May 12, 2012, 2:25 p.m.

Two teens were airlifted to Providence Sacred Heart Medical Center hospital today after a rollover crash in Ferry County.

Drugs or alcohol were involved, according to the Washington State Patrol. The teens, Kyle Kirkendall, 19, and a 17-year-old passenger, were southbound on Highway 21 eight miles north of Republic when the crash occurred about 12:41 a.m.

Kirkendall drifted off the roadway in a Ford Ranger pickup, over corrected, and then rolled, coming to a rest on the southbound shoulder.

Kirkendall is listed in stable condition, according to a hospital official. The other teen’s condition could not be released because he is a minor.

Neither teen was wearing a seat belt. Charges are pending.
