Two Spokane women were injured when a 93-year-old driver driving the wrong way on U.S. Highway 195 collided with another vehicle head-on Thursday evening, according to the Washington State Patrol.

Evelyn M. Emery was driving a 2004 Buick Century northbound in the southbound lanes about five miles south of Spokane, a WSP news release said. About 6:48 p.m., she ran into a 2006 Honda CRV driven by Kathleen M. Babbitt, 60.

Both drivers were taken to Providence Sacred Heart Medical Center. WSP is investigating the cause of the crash.
