Trooper Jeff Sevigney, who serves as the WSP’s spokesman in the Spokane area, was riding east on Trent Avenue near Mission Avenue at about 3 p.m. when the pickup pulled into his lane, the Washington State Patrol reported.
Sevigney, 42, was treated and released from Providence Sacred Heart Medical Center. The driver, identified as 64-year-old Charles Meeks, was uninjured and charged with making an improper lane change.
