SPOKANE VALLEY, WA (May 30, 2023) – Police confirmed that three boys suffered serious injuries in a pedestrian accident on Highway 27 on May 21.
According to the Washington State Patrol, the collision happened at 24th Avenue. Based on a report, the 11-month and the 2-year-old were in a double stroller at the time of the crash.
