Four hospitalized after three-car crash north of Spokane

UPDATED: Mon., April 1, 2019

Two adults and two children were hospitalized Monday morning after a crash involving three vehicles near Whitworth University.

The Washington State Patrol reported Jessica H. Fisk, 21, was driving north on U.S. Highway 395 and failed to stop at a red light just before 11 a.m., crashing her Dodge Challenger into a Toyota minivan in the Hawthorne Road intersection.

The minivan then struck a Chevy Cavalier driven by a 17-year-old girl from Mead, according to the WSP.

Fisk, who lives in East Wenatchee, was injured and transported to Providence Sacred Heart Medical Center. So were the three occupants of the minivan: the driver, Jamie N. Biggerstaff, 36, of Spokane, a 6-year-old girl and a 9-year-old boy.

Their vehicles were impounded.

The 17-year-old was not injured and was able to drive her car from the scene, according to the WSP.

A hospital spokeswoman said Fisk was still being evaluated Monday afternoon, but Biggerstaff was listed in satisfactory condition. The children’s conditions weren’t immediately available.

The WSP reported charges were pending.
