SPOKANE, Wash. —

The first snow of the season caught some drivers unprepared, leading to more than 70 accidents in Eastern Washington - at least two of them fatal crashes.

Two young people in a car died in a head-on collision with a truck about 3:50 p.m. Friday north of Deer Park. Authorities say the victims were 20 and 18 years of age. The State Patrol arrested a 39-year-old man for investigation of driving under the influence.

A one-car rollover accident took the life of a 64-year-old man who was driving along Highway 2 and Highway 211 in Pend Oreille County near Diamond Lake at 3 p.m. Friday. Clyde Lippencott died at the scene and a passenger in his car was hospitalized. Officials say Lippencott lost control of his car, which rolled into a ditch.

Temperatures dropped Friday afternoon and a storm front that was dumping rain suddenly began dumping snow.
