SPANGLE — A local man was killed early Saturday morning when his pickup crossed the centerline and hit a tractor-trailer head-on.

Shane M. Remp, 32, was pronounced dead at the scene at 1:31 a.m. near Milepost 75 of U.S. Highway 195, the Washington State Patrol Reported.

The crash occurred when Remp's northbound 2006 Chevrolet Silverado crossed the centerline and struck a southbound 2016 Kenworth driven by Joseph E. Reid, 48 of Spokane Valley, the patrol reported. Reid's truck was towing a 1995 Beall trailer.

The Silverado came to rest in the southbound ditch and the truck on the southbound shoulder, the patrol said.

Reid, who was wearing a seatbelt, was not injured, the patrol said, noting it is not known if Remp was buckled in.

The patrol said it is unknown if alcohol or drugs were factors in the crash.

The cause of the crash was crossing the centerline, the patrol said.
