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.
style="margin: 0in 0in 0pt">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.

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.
"5">The two injured bus passengers were treated at Cascade Medical Center in Leavenworth. An investigation
continues and no charges have been filed yet.
