Chewelah man dies in Highway 395 collision near Addy

UPDATED: Fri., Jan. 24, 2014

From staff reports
A 32-year-old Chewelah man died from injuries sustained in a two-car collision on Highway 395 near Addy early Friday, the Washington State Patrol said. Aaron Huff was pronounced dead at St. Joseph’s Hospital shortly after 7 a.m. Friday, according to a news release. He was killed after a 1993 Ford pickup driven by 20-year-old Jacob Kraght crossed the center line and struck Huff’s 2002 Kia sedan head-on, according to the State Patrol. The incident, which occurred shortly after 6 a.m., initially closed both lanes of the north-south highway. Officials said both lanes had reopened shortly before 11 a.m. Kraght was taken from the scene to Sacred Heart Medical Center with injuries. Both vehicles were totaled in the collision. Huff was wearing a seatbelt at the time of the collision; it is unknown whether Kraght was doing the same. The collision is under investigation and charges may be forthcoming, the State Patrol said in its news release.
