Crash involving DNR truck diverts traffic for three hours

From staff reports
A two-vehicle collision involving a Department of Natural Resources vehicle blocked State Route 291 for several hours Tuesday afternoon. At about 2 p.m., 76-year-old Cordelia Brown was traveling northbound about seven miles north of Spokane when she crossed the center lane of traffic, hitting the DNR vehicle head on, the Washington State Patrol said. She was airlifted to Providence Sacred Heart Medical Center and treated for an injured leg, Trooper Jeff Sevigney said. The driver of the DNR truck, Jacob Flint, 20, and his passenger Jason Burdick, 23, were transported by ambulance to Holy Family Hospital. Both were treated and released, Sevigney said. One lane of traffic was closed for about three hours Tuesday, according to a news release. All three were wearing seat belts and drugs and alcohol are not believed to be a factor in the crash, Sevigney said.
