Milton-Freewater man involved in head-on collision has died


A Milton-Freewater man has died from a head-on collision that occurred Friday morning near Harvey Shaw Road, two miles north of Walla Walla.

Charles N. Wallace, 58, was a passenger in a 2008 Honda Civic, driven by Eric W. Banks, 52, of Walla Walla. Both men were wearing seat belts, according to a report from Washington State Patrol.

Officials said a 1995 Chevrolet Cavalier, driven by Cody James Lynch, 23, of Waitsburg, crossed over the center line and struck Banks' vehicle head on at 7 a.m.

Inattention was listed as the cause. No drug or alcohol involvement is being reported at this time.

The three men were taken to Providence St. Mary Medical Center, and Wallace was eventually taken to Harborbiew Medical Center in Seattle, where he died Monday.
