Six injured in Stevens County crash

Six people were injured in the Monday night chain-reaction crash started by a car driven by a 15-year-old boy in Stevens County.

Washington State Patrol this morning identified the adults injured as Naomi Smith, 35, and Linda Parker, 51, both of Nine Mile Falls. Smith, Parker and the 15-year-old unidentified boy were the drivers of each of the three vehicles involved.

Parker was the only one not injured. Six people were transported to Providence Sacred Heart Medical Center.

The boy, who was driving three other juveniles in a 2002 Toyota Prius, was southbound on Highway 291 near the Stevens and Spokane County line when he crossed over the center line and struck Parker’s 2004 Saturn Ion.

The Prius then slid into another northbound car, Smith’s 2003 Lexus sport utility vehicle, before spinning and coming to a rest in a ditch.

Another boy in Smith’s Lexus was also injured.

The 15-year-old driver and one of his passengers were wearing seatbelts, but two of the boys in the car were not. All three people in the other two vehicles were restrained, according to patrol.

The cause of the accident is still under investigation. Charges have not been filed.
