Speed, snow and ice factors in Coulee City crash

— A Grand Coulee woman was injured Friday when his car went off state Highway 155 north of town and hit several large rocks.

Arlene S. Lsansky, 58, was taken to Coulee Medical Center in Grand Coulee, the Washington State Patrol said.

She was northbound about 16 miles north town at 11:25 a.m. when her car skidded on snow and ice, then went off the road’s right side and hit the rocks, the patrol reported. The vehicle came to rest in the northbound ditch.

Neither drugs nor alcohol were involved, the patrol said. She was wearing a seatbelt.

Lsansky was cited for speed too fast for conditions, the patrol said.

Her car was destroyed.
