FIRST ON KHQ: Witnesses pull driver from SUV moments before it catches fire

Posted: Updated:

SPOKANE, Wash - A woman is recovering in the hospital Wednesday night after her SUV crashed head-on with a dump truck.

Spokane County Sheriff's Deputies said the woman was driving along Parksmith Dr. around 4 p.m. when she crossed into oncoming traffic. Deputies said she clipped the front of the dump truck, then crashed into a trailer it was towing.

The woman was pinned inside her SUV after the crash, but fortunately witnesses pulled her out of the vehicle just moments before it caught fire. Deputies said she wasn't badly hurt.

The crash closed the intersection of Parksmith Dr. and Hawthorne Dr. for just under two hours Wednesday afternoon.

Deputies tell us they don't know what made the woman swerve into oncoming traffic. Her name has not been released.
