PRESS RELEASE FROM THE WASHINGTON STATE PATROL: The Washington State Patrol's Major Accident Investigation Team (MAIT) is investigating the two-truck, railroad trestle fatality collision that occurred last Friday, November 22, 2013 at 7:18 in the morning. 

The crash was on State Route 20 at milepost 406 in Pend Oreille County. Detectives have learned that a southbound tractor-trailer tipped over in a curve to the right and crossed the centerline into the path of a northbound tractor towing a lowboy trailer. 

The trucks collided in the northbound lane and the original truck continued south into a pillar supporting the train trestle. Detectives are seeking witnesses that may have seen any events leading to or the actual crash. 

If you have any information or know someone who does, please contact Detective Sergeant Jerry Cooper at (360) 805-1192 or Detective Dan Comnick at (360) 805-1160.
