Motorcyclist killed in early morning crash

By From staff reports

A motorcyclist killed in an accident this morning was an airman assigned to Fairchild Air Force Base’s survival school.

Emory A. Corwine, 24, of Andover, N.Y., was pronounced dead at 6:26 a.m. at Providence Sacred Heart Medical Center, a news release from Fairchild said.

Corwine was headed west on state Highway 2 near Hayford Road when his 1980 Yamaha collided with a 2006 Cadillac driven by Shelly M. Willoughby, 36, of Spokane.

Willoughby was pulling out of a parking lot on the north side of the road and attempting to turn left. She was not injured, a news release from the Washington State Patrol said.

The WSP attributed the cause to Willoughby’s failure to yield and anticipates charges. The accident occurred around 5:50 a.m.

Willoughby was wearing a seat belt and Corwine was wearing a helmet.

The Fairchild news release said Corwine was assigned to the 336th Training Group at the SERE (Survival, Evasion, Resistance, Escape) school.

“The airman’s family, friends and unit are in our thoughts and prayers,” said Col. Paul Guemmer, 92nd Air Refueling Wing commander.
