Fatal accident found near Stateline

Investigators believe a fatal car accident discovered in the 25800 block of East River Road near Stateline at 4 p.m. today actually occurred around 7 p.m. Wednesday, according to the Spokane County Sheriff’s Office. A 911 caller reported seeing a car about 150 feet down an embankment on the north side of the Spokane River and what appeared to be a body near the car. It appears that the driver was heading east when the car went down the embankment and rolled multiple times, according to the Sheriff’s Office. The woman was not wearing a seat belt and was ejected. The woman’s identity will be released by the Spokane County Medical Examiner’s Office after an autopsy.
