Sunday crash near Chattaroy caused by driver failing to yield on Highway 2, Washington State Patrol says

UPDATED: Sun., Aug. 4, 2019

A 93-year-old driver cut off another vehicle on Highway 2 about 10 miles north of Spokane, causing a chain reaction of collisions late Sunday morning, Washington State Patrol investigators say.

Alvera Quaschnick was traveling east in a Mercury Montego on Chattaroy Road just before noon and turned right onto southbound Highway 2 in front of a Chevy Silverado driven by Trevor Hansen, 41, according to a news release.

When Hansen hit Quaschnick’s car, his truck pushed her car into the next lane and caused a Ford Econoline van and trailer driven by Rochelle Anderson, 34, to roll over into the center median.

Quaschnick, Hansen and Anderson were all transported to the hospital, along with Quaschnick’s passenger Johanna Hagg, 85, and Anderson’s passenger, Kristopher Anderson, 37.

Kristopher Anderson was the only person not wearing a seat belt, according to WSP.

The Ford and Mercury vehicles were both totaled.

WSP determined Quaschnick caused the crash after not yielding the right of way to Hansen, according to the news release. Investigators said neither drugs nor alcohol were involved in the crash.
