Here is a correction to an auto accident story first aired on KOHO Wednesday morning: it appears the bus hit the pickup on Highway 2 Tuesday, not the other way around as originally reported.
State Troopers say a Trailways bus carrying 40 passengers crashed into a pickup truck Tuesday on Highway two, injuring two bus passengers. A State Patrol report says it happened around 1:30 in the afternoon when the pickup, driven by 21 year old Kevin Waters of Peshastin tried to make a left hand turn. The bus, driven by Kevin Whalen of Spokane, was following the truck. It apparently attempted to pass the pickup in a no passing lane, struck vehicle, and caused it to spin out of control.
Kevin Waters told KOHO his pickup’s turn signal was on, and the bus driver should have seen him. Waters said his truck is now essentially totaled, and while the accident was quite frightening, he and his passenger were luckily unhurt.
The two injured bus passengers were treated at Cascade Medical Center in Leavenworth. An investigation continues and no charges have been filed yet.
