SPOKANE — The Washington State Patrol says a woman who was driving the wrong way in a collision on Highway 195 has died at a Spokane hospital.
The patrol says 93-year-old Evelyn Emery was taken to Sacred Heart Medical Center Thursday and died Monday of her injuries.
The other driver in the head-on crash, 60-year-old Kathleen Babbitt, also was taken to the hospital. She is listed in satisfactory condition.
Emery had been driving north in the southbound lanes about five miles south of Spokane, a WSP news release said. Her 2004 Buick Century hit Babbitt’s 2006 Honda CRV just before 7 p.m. Babbitt was wearing a seat belt, and Emery was not, the release said.
