LEWISTON - On Wednesday, February 12 at just before 2:30 P.M., Nez Perce County Deputies and Lewiston Medics responded to an injury collison on Old Spiral Highway just north of Sutton Salvage. When Deputies arrived on scene, they found a gray Honda Civic on its side, and in the ditch.

The vehicle was occupied by a single male and he was found unresponsive. When medics arrived on scene, the driver was pronounced deceased. Speed did not appear to be a factor, however the crash is still under investigation. The identity of the driver is currently being withheld until next of kin is notified.
