Man accused of vehicular assault after his station wagon strikes motorcycle

From staff reports

A man whose station wagon crashed into a motorcycle Sunday evening west of Spokane was accused by state troopers of driving under the influence.

Brandon M. Mott, 30, was driving east in the left lane of U.S. Highway 2 around 7 p.m. when he drove into the right lane to pass a car, the Washington State Patrol reported. After moving beyond the car, Mott’s Saturn station wagon merged back into the left lane, striking a motorcycle, the WSP said.

The motorcyclist, Jennifer G. Duncan, 54, of Spokane, was injured and taken to Providence Sacred Heart Medical Center, where she was listed in satisfactory condition Monday morning. Duncan was wearing a helmet at the time of the crash, the WSP said.

Mott, a resident of Smartville, California, was uninjured and booked into the Spokane County Jail on a charge of vehicular assault.

The crash occurred about 4 miles east of Airway Heights.
