Man dies following horseplay at Spokane Valley wedding reception

Associated Press - August 27, 2007 8:05 AM ET

SPOKANE VALLEY, Wash. (AP) - A man has died following what authorities say was some horseplay at a wedding reception in Spokane Valley.

Police say the man died yesterday at a hospital after being treated at a hospital for a closed-head injury.

Police say they got a call Saturday night about a two-vehicle accident in which a man had fallen out of the bed of a pickup truck.

However, investigators say there was no collision. Instead, police say a man apparently climbed into the bed of the pickup and his friend, the driver, suddenly accelerated, causing the man to fall to the pavement.

Police say both men had been drinking at a wedding party. No arrests have been reported and the case remains under investigation.
