Stuart Lacy, 49, of Monroe, died Tuesday after the 2006 Chevy Express van he was driving rolled negotiating a turn along state Highway 20 north of Usk, the Washington State Patrol reported.
The incident occurred just after 4 p.m. Tuesday about 4 miles north of Usk, Pend Oreille County, on state Highway 20, according to a news release from the WSP.
While traveling north on a stretch of highway hugging the Pend Oreille River, the van left the roadway to the right into a ditch, rolled, then struck a power pole. Lacy was declared dead at the scene.
Lacy was the sole occupant of the vehicle, and no one else was injured. Lacy was not wearing a seatbelt at the time of the crash, the WSP reported.

UPDATE: 1:20 p.m. | NEWPORT, Pend Oreille County — Two Spokane men were found dead after they got into a fight at a remote campground in northeastern Washington where a group of people had been drinking, authorities said Monday.
The incident occurred early Sunday at an undeveloped campground on Yocum Lake, about 10 miles south of Ione.
Steven Divine, 22, had been stabbed, while Richard R. Hill, 18, had been shot, authorities said.
About 10 people, ages 18 to 24, had been drinking when the fight broke out between the two men, Pend Oreille County Sheriff Alan Botzheim said.
The sheriff blamed alcohol consumption.
“If you subtracted the alcohol, this wouldn’t have occurred,” Botzheim said.
“There was just an argument over a vehicle that backed into Steven Divine’s vehicle,” he added. “He was upset over that, and that’s what started the argument.”
Only Divine and Hill were involved in the fight, and there were no other suspects, although the investigation was continuing, Botzheim said.
