Woman injured in car wreck


An Omak woman was injured and flown to a hospital after the car she was driving hit black ice Friday morning.

Maya Best, 31, was airlifted to Harborview Medical Center in Seattle with unspecified injuries after the 2007 Ford Freestyle she was driving slid off highway 155 about 11 miles north of Nespelem, close to Disautel Pass.

As Best was southbound at 7:15 a.m., her car hit black ice and slid off the road to the right and into a boulder, then came to rest blocking the northbound lane at about milepost 56, according to a Washington State Patrol report.

Best was listed in serious condition at Harborview Tuesday afternoon.
