Accidents Keep Law Enforcement Busy

A busy day for local law enforcement- and it's not even 11 yet. There have already been three accidents in the Spokane area, including one that was fatal.

A motorcyclist had an accident near Rosalia, killing him. No word yet on what caused that accident. All State Patrol troopers will say at this point is that traffic on Highway 195 in both directions is blocked, but an altenate route is being used to get traffic around the scene.

In an earlier accident, a child was reported taken to a hospital after being hit along Sullivan Road at Fourth Avenue about 6:45 a.m. No word on the child's condition.

Another accident a few minutes later occurred on Trent Avenue east of Barker Road when two vehicles collided head on, causing injuries to occupants.
