Four area women injured after rear-end collision in Freeman on Sunday morning

UPDATED: Sun., June 21, 2020

Four women were injured late Sunday morning after a rear-end vehicle collision in Freeman, according to the Washington State Patrol. 

A Dodge sedan driven by Ella Holm, 76, of Spokane Valley struck a Honda subcompact car on State Route 27 right next to the Freeman Store just before noon, according to a news release. The Honda, carrying Corrine Carter, 34, and Theresa Williams, 49, both of Spokane; and Kristen Schulz, 57, of Lynnwood, attempted to turn but was struck from behind by Holm. 

All four women were taken to Providence Sacred Heart Medical Center with injuries. They were all wearing seatbelts, according to WSP. 

The crash was caused by Holm following the Honda too close, according to WSP.
