A Spokane Valley, Washington mother and her 12-year old daughter died, and her 10-year old son received non-life threatening injuries, Sunday afternoon in a single vehicle rollover crash on Interstate 84 about eleven miles east of Arlington.
 
According to Oregon State Police Sergeant Julie Wilcox, on April 20, 2008 at approximately 4:19 p.m. a 2000 Subaru Forester station wagon driven by HEATHER SHRUM, age 33, from Spokane Valley, Washington, was eastbound on Interstate 84 at milepost 148. For an unknown reason SHRUM veered right onto the gravel shoulder, apparently over-corrected to the left and lost control. The Subaru rolled several times on the roadway and down an embankment in the center median area between the eastbound and westbound lanes. The vehicle came to rest on its wheels facing west.
 
SHRUM and her 12-year old daughter, LACY FRY, were deceased at the scene. SHRUM's son, BAILEY FRY, age 10, was transported by ambulance to the Mid Columbia Medical Center in The Dalles with non-life threatening injuries.
 
All occupants in the vehicle had been using safety restraints.
 
Next of kin notifications were made by personnel from the Spokane County Sheriff's Office.
 
Oregon State Police troopers from The Dalles Area Command office are completing the investigation. Gilliam County Sheriff's Office, ODOT and Arlington Fire Department assisted at the scene of the crash.
