ROCKFORD, WA -- One man is seriously injured after a one car crash on Hoxie Road, one mile east of Rockford.
The crash happened just before 10:30 Friday morning. Washington State Patrol says 39-year-old Ernest Keeler drifted over the center line, crossed the westbound lane, and struck a tree. Troopers say he was driving too fast for the conditions.
Troopers called Medstar out and paramedics landed about an hour later. Keeler was taken to Sacred Heart Medical Center in Spokane.
They say Keeler failed to make a curve in the road and was stuck inside the vehicle for some time. It took several crews to pull him out.
