SPOKANE, Wash. -- The head-on collision on U.S. 195 was cleared around 11:30 Tuesday morning but traffic is still being detoured to Cheney-Spokane to Qualchan Road until further notice.

A woman driving the  wrong way in the southbound lane of U.S. 195 hit an oncoming car head-on at 8:00 Tuesday morning according to the Washington State Patrol.
