On 01/15/17 at approximately 6:18PM a Douglas County Deputy responded to a report a one car injury accident on Rd. 4 NE near Coulee City.
When the Deputy arrived, he learned that a female passenger in the vehicle had already been transported to Columbia Basin Hospital in Ephrata. It appeared the vehicle, a 2006 Toyota Avalon, had crossed the centerline and onto the opposite shoulder of the road. The wheels got caught in heavy snow and the vehicle rolled over.
Investigation revealed that the male driver, 28 year old Michael Landin, of Coulee City was showing clear signs of intoxication. He was arrested for Vehicular Assault and transported to the Okanogan County Jail.
The passenger had lacerations on her head that did not appear to be life threatening.
