Crash kills one, injures four


One man died as three others were injured in a one-car rollover south of Nespelem Thursday just before noon. 

John Reynolds, 44, died in the accident on SR 155, the only occupant of the 2003 Ford Explorer not wearing a seatbelt, according to the Washington State Patrol.

All five of them were from Bellingham, Wash.

The driver, 52-year-old Brian S. Reynolds, was airlifted to Spokane's Sacred Heart Medical Center.

Jack T. Reynolds, 82; Shari Lynn Emley, 48; and Cullen J. Emley, 26, were all taken to Coulee Medical Center in Grand Coulee.

The vehicle failed to negotiate a curve to the left six miles south of Nespelem, just north of Belvedere, and left the roadway to the right. The driver over corrected to the left and the Explorer rolled on its top back on the highway.
