The GCSO says the collision occurred between the two vehicles, McDonnell's car left the highway, traveled about 300 feet after knocking down a light pole, and came to a stop back on the SR 17.  He did not sustain any injuries and was not transported.

Harris's car was also totaled, and he sustained non-life-threatening injuries. He was taken to Good Samaritan Hospital for evaluation. The Moses Lake Police Department is in charge of the accident investigation, after which their report will be given to a review board to decide what actions will be taken next.
