Driver in crash near Lake Roosevelt in serious condition

A driver who crossed the centerline and struck a pickup carrying an Airway Heights family near Lake Roosevelt remained in serious condition Sunday. Otto V. Sieber, 73, of Yakima, was hospitalized at Providence Sacred Heart Medical Center. Five others involved in the wreck were treated and released Saturday night at St. Joseph’s Hospital in Chewelah. Sieber was driving a 1996 Ford Mustang north on state Route 25 near Lake Roosevelt about 7 p.m. Saturday when he crossed the centerline and struck a 2005 Dodge pickup towing a boat, according to the Washington State Patrol. Kenneth R. and Jeannine M. Collins, of Airway Heights, both 30, were traveling in the truck with their 5- and 1-year-old daughters. All were wearing seat belts, according to the WSP. Sieber was traveling with an 11-year-old passenger; neither was wearing a seat belt, the WSP said.
