A 32-year-old Elk man faces possible vehicular assault charges following a two-car accident on Elk-Milan Road on Saturday afternoon.
According to the Spokane County Sheriffâ€™s Office, Tony Blake of Elk was traveling northbound on Milan-Elk Rd when he crossed over the centerline with his 1978 GMC pickup truck and struck a 2005 Mazda MP driven by Crystal Stokes, 69.
Stokes suffered a fractured pelvis, clavicle, and rib. She was flown from the scene by MedStar to a Spokane hospital. Her passenger, Edward Stokes, 65, sustained a fractured back and internal injuries. Both Stokes are in satisfactory condition.
Blake suffered knee and facial injuries. He too was transported to a Spokane hospital for treatment.
A deputy met Blake at the hospital where he was placed under arrest for vehicular assault. A blood sample was taken from Blake and will be sent to the Washington State Toxicology Laboratory for analysis. The sheriffâ€™s department should receive the results in about six weeks.
Both vehicles were seized as evidence and traffic investigators continue to look into the accident.
