2 Killed in Spokane Traffic Collision
Spokane, WA (May 1, 2023) – Just before midnight on Saturday, the authorities arrested 29-year-old Megan Skillingstad in a fatal hit-and-run crash near West Trails Road.
Officers responded to an area near the intersection of North Flint Road and found a man and a woman, both dead, lying in a ditch nearby.
Investigating officers located debris from a collision and the Washington license plate.
Moreover, it has been reported that a dark-colored pickup truck crashed in a ditch less than a mile away.
The authorities contacted the driver, Skillingstad. Officers suspected her of being under the influence of alcohol when the accident happened.
