Residents in the area said the driver of the truck was ejected in the crash. Police said the driver lost his leg and was transported to a nearby hospital. He is awake and talking at the hospital, so he is stable.
Spokane Valley PD said Thursday it appeared a Mazda P/U heading north crossed the center line and hit a southbound flatbed trailer being towed by a full size pickup. The collision, SVPD said, sliced through the Mazda, hitting the driver and severing a portion of his leg and the seatbelt he was wearing.
SVPD said the Mazda rolled and the driver was ejected. The other driver was not injured. Investigators said they are still working to determine what caused the crash and they do not believe impairment was a factor.
