MEAD, Wash. -

PRESS RELEASE FROM THE SPOKANE COUNTY SHERIFF'S OFFICE: On Monday night, June 17, 2013, at 7:20 p.m., Spokane County Sheriff's Deputies responded to a one-vehicle rollover collision near the area of 5910 E. Peone Road. Deputies located a Dodge sedan that had driven off Peone Road, struck a power pole and rolled several times prior to coming to rest in a field.

Spokane County Traffic Detective Jack Rosenthal responded to investigate the collision. From Detective Rosenthal's investigation, he determined the 18-year-old single occupant had been traveling eastbound on Peone west of Fairview Road. Tire transfer markings on the roadway indicate the vehicle was traveling at a high rate of speed prior to crossing westbound lanes of traffic and leaving the roadway. 

The vehicle struck a power pole and rolled multiple times. The driver was ejected and came to final rest approximately 100 feet from the vehicle. The driver was airlifted to a local hospital where he was last reported to be in serious condition.
 
According to Detective Rosenthal neither alcohol nor drugs seemed to be a contributing factor.  Speed and possibly distracted driving appear to be the cause of the collision. The investigation is still ongoing.

The driver, who was ejected during the crash, was found by paramedics over 100 feet away in a wheat field. 

He was transported by Medstar to the hospital. We're told right now he remains in critical condition.
