A distracted Spokane driver caused a single-car rollover crash northeast of Grand Coulee, Douglas County, that sent five people to the hospital Saturday evening, according to Washington State Patrol.
Jared B. Pillow, 30, was driving east on State Route 174 in a Ford Thunderbird around 7:20 p.m. with four passengers from Spokane —Justin Pillow, 56; Anastasia Pillow, 15; Stacy Pillow, 15; and Ashlon Hardenbrook, 14— when his car left the roadway to the right, over-corrected to the left and rolled over to the right, according to WSP.
Pillow’s car came to rest in a ditch on the eastbound side of the road, according to WSP. All of the people in the car were transported to Coulee Medical Center, and only Hardenbrook was not wearing a seat belt.
Jared Pillow, who WSP said was distracted while driving, was charged with second-degree negligent driving, according to a news release.
