SPOKANE – A local man is facing charges after an alleged alcohol-related crash at the Interstate 90-U.S. Highway 195 interchange on Friday, Aug. 19.

Thomas L. Moyles, 42, of Spokane was injured in the crash and taken to Sacred Heart Medical Center, the Washington State Patrol reported.

The crash occurred at about 5:10 p.m. as Moyles attempted to exit westbound Highway 195 and merge onto the northbound interstate, the patrol said.

His 200 Jeep Grand Cherokee veered off the roadway, struck and embankment and vaulted through the air, where it struck an elevated railroad trestle pillar.

The patrol said the Jeep came to rest on its roof.

It is unknown if Moyles was wearing a seatbelt, the patrol said, noting driving while under the influence is believed to be the cause of the crash.

Charges are pending, the patrol said.

Moyles’ vehicle was towed from the scene by All Service East.
