Emergency crews from Spokane County Fire District No. 4 and Deer Park Ambulance spent a part of Thursday morning extricating a driver following a one-vehicle accident on Monroe Road.
The driver of the Dodge pickup, whose name was not immediately released, went off the roadway, traveled a short distance and struck a tree. When emergency crews arrived at around 11:15 a.m., they found the truck on its side.
Fire crews needed to cut off the top of the pickup to free the driver who was transported to Providence Sacred Heart Medical Center.
A funeral service will be held at 11 a.m. on Dec. 30 at Riplinger Funeral Home, Spokane, followed by a graveside service at 1 p.m. at Spokane Memorial Gardens for former Riverside teacher James R. Gady, 78, who passed away on Dec. 26.
Born on Aug. 18, 1933 in Spokane, he graduated from Mead High School and served with the Army Corps of Engineers as a sergeant in the Korean War. After returning from Korea, he married Marjorie Becker on Oct. 12, 1956.
He attended Whitworth College and earned his bachelorâ€™s and masterâ€™s degrees. He then taught in the Riverside and Mead School districts.
