Mother and Daughter Die in Crash on Interstate 84Salem-News.com
Investigators say they do not know why the woman's vehicle suddenly veered from the roadway.
(ARLINGTON, Ore.) - A Spokane Valley, Washington mother and her 12-year old daughter died, and her 10-year old son received non-life threatening injuries, Sunday afternoon in a single vehicle rollover crash on Interstate 84 about eleven miles east of Arlington.
Oregon State Police Sergeant Julie Wilcox says that at approximately 4:19 PM, a 2000 Subaru Forester station wagon driven by 33-year old Heather Scrum of Spokane Valley, Washington, was eastbound on Interstate 84 at milepost 148.
For an unknown reason Heather Scrum veered right onto the gravel shoulder, apparently over-corrected to the left and lost control.
The Subaru rolled several times on the roadway and down an embankment in the center median area between the eastbound and westbound lanes. The vehicle came to rest on its wheels facing west.
Heather Scrum and her 12-year old daughter, Lacy Fry, were deceased at the scene. Heather Scrum's son, 10-year old Bailey Fry, was transported by ambulance to the Mid Columbia Medical Center in The Dalles with non-life threatening injuries.
Investigators say all occupants in the vehicle had been using safety restraints.
Next of kin notifications were made by personnel from the Spokane County Sheriff's Office.
