A 20-year-old man is dead following a two-vehicle collision Friday afternoon on U.S. Highway 195, 2 miles south of Pullman.
Noah McCarley, 20, of Lewiston, was driving southbound around 2:51 p.m. when he reportedly lost control of his 2003 Subaru Legacy on the icy road and slid sideways across the center line, according to a news release from the Washington State Patrol.
Brian Peterson, a 50-year-old Moscow man driving a 2015 Ford Expedtion in the northbound lane, struck McCarley’s vehicle as it crossed the center line, according to the WSP.
McCarley was pronounced dead at the scene. Peterson was taken by ambulance to Pullman Regional Hospital with unknown injuries.
The WSP reported the cause of the accident as driving too fast for conditions. Both drivers were wearing seat belts at the time of the accident.
