Three people were injured in a one-car accident on March 1 at Elk-Chattaroy and Tallman roads.
According to Spokane County Sheriffâ€™s Department collision investigator Deputy J. Thurman, the vehicle was traveling west on Elk-Chattaroy Road when it drove onto the shoulder of the roadway. The driver was not able to negotiate the vehicle back onto the road and struck a large tree head-on.
The family of four was not wearing their seatbelts which contributed to their injuries, he said.

Most of the more than 100 animals seized from a farm in Elk last week by Spokane County Regional Animal Protection Service (SCRAPS) have found new homes.
â€śIt has been a long week for SCRAPS but we think we see a light at the end of the tunnel,â€ť said SCRAPS Development Coordinator Jackie Bell. â€śOur community has been so unbelievably supportive of SCRAPS by donating time, money, supplies and now adopting these animals,â€ť she continued.
SCRAPS has adopted all of the animals from this seizure.
