Woman Seriously Injured In SR 20 Okanogan Co. Crash
One person has serious injuries after a single vehicle crash Sunday morning in Okanogan County 20 miles east of Tonasket.
Troopers say a 2014 Chevy Silverado pickup truck driven by 67-year-old Patti Heckathorn of Colville was eastbound on SR 20 when it left the roadway and hit tree head-on.
Heckathorn was initially entrapped in the pickup before being taken by a helicopter to Sacred Heart Medical Center in Spokane.
Troopers say her injuries included vertebral fractures in the neck, a broken left leg and lacerations to the right leg.
Heckathorn was cited for driving too fast for conditions. She was wearing a seat belt.
Troopers say drugs or alcohol were not involved in the crash, which occurred just before 10am Sunday.
