Good evening and welcome to the NCWLIFE Evening News. I’m Grant Olson. Before we get to today’s top news stories, let’s take a quick look outside our weather window:

And now, a few of the stories we’re following for you tonight, A woman badly injured in a three-car accident Wednesday south of Quincy has died. A Marysville man who became lost while on a hunting trip in the Lake Wenatchee area was found by rescuers early Sunday morning after a five-hour search. A pilot escaped uninjured after his plane crashed Sunday near Warden in Grant County, and, Moses Lake police expect to file animal cruelty charges against man after a video surfaced on Facebook that showed him apparently hitting and kicking his dog.   

But first, we begin tonight. . .

A 78-year-old Moses Lake man was killed Saturday when the motorcycle he was riding westbound on Interstate 90 near Vantage went off the roadway and struck an embankment.

The Washington State Patrol said Edward J. Wright was ejected from the 2019 Harley-Davidson motorcycle and died at the scene. The accident happened about 2:30 Saturday afternoon. The State Patrol said Williamson may have suffered a medical issue prior to the crash.

A woman badly injured in a three-car accident Wednesday south of Quincy has died. 23-year-old Patricia Milanes Moreno passed away Friday at Providence Sacred Heart Medical Center in Spokane.

State troopers say the Yakima woman crossed the centerline while northbound on Highway 281 between Quincy and George. Her Honda Accord collided with a southbound Ford Mustang and then a Nissan Quest. The driver of the Nissan, 49-year-old Lidia Rodriguez of George, was also injured.

A Marysville man who became lost while on a hunting trip in the Lake Wenatchee area was found by rescuers early Sunday morning after a five-hour search.

According to the Chelan County Sheriff’s Office,73-year old David Sargent of Marysville became lost on a primitive road near Meadow Creek while hiking to meet his hunting party and was reported missing by his family at 9:30 Saturday night. Sargent was able to make radio contact with searchers but was unable to determine his location. Rescuers were able to locate Sargent at about 2:30 Sunday morning after he fired his rifle to help narrow the search parameter. Sargent, who was suffering from hypothermia and low blood sugar, was transported to Cascade Medical Center in Leavenworth where is his listed in fair and stable condition.

A pilot escaped uninjured after his plane crashed Sunday near Warden in Grant County. The Grant County Sheriff’s Office said Grant Cox was attempting to land his 1989 Christen Industries model A-1 about 2 p.m. when he struck a power line. The accident happened near Road 2 Southeast and Road P Southeast.

Moses Lake police expect to file animal cruelty charges against man after a video surfaced on Facebook that showed him apparently hitting and kicking his dog.

Police said Sunday they had rescued the dog and it was in custody and safe. On the video, which has since been removed from Facebook, the man is first heard shouting obscenities, then the yelp of a dog. The person taking the video then raises the camera over the fence of the man’s property and the man is shown swinging and kicking as a second dog paces around the backyard.

Coming up next, COVID-19 has been detected in two Leavenworth schoolchildren, one of whom was attending middle school classes. The Grant County Sheriff’s Office said they may never know why a dog attacked its owners earlier this month, killing a 27-year-old Moses Lake man. A cyberattack playing on concerns about coronavirus is apparently making the rounds, and, Emergency responders in Grant County are mourning the death of the founder of Protection 1 EMT service in Quincy. I’m Grant Olson and you’re watching the NCWLIFE Evening News.

Welcome back, and in other news. . .

Two siblings attending Cascade schools in Leavenworth have tested positive for COVID-19. However, because their exposure was limited, hybrid classes will continue as normal. The district says one student, from Alpine Lakes Elementary, last attended in-person classes there October 9th.

The other, an Icicle River Middle School student, has not been on campus. All students attending school buildings for hybrid instruction must wear facial coverings and practice social distancing. Both students must test negative for the virus and remain off-campus for a period of time before they can return to in-person schooling.

The Grant County Sheriff’s Office said they may never know why a dog attacked its owners earlier this month, killing a 27-year-old Moses Lake man. Last week Grant County Coroner Craig Morrison said Zachary Willis died of multiple dog bites from the pit bull mix.

He declared the manner of death accidental. A woman in the Harvest Manor mobile home also was hospitalized in the October 8th attack. Sheriff’s Office spokesman Kyle Foreman said QUOTE, The answer to why the dog attacked may never be fully known. It’s just one of those cases where some questions will go unanswered. UNQUOTE.

A cyberattack playing on concerns about coronavirus is apparently making the rounds.

The Wenatchee Valley Chamber of Commerce and the Chelan-Douglas Health District say an emailed zip file with the label Phase 2 Guidance apparently carries malware that can infect your computer. The health district is not the source of the email, and it advises anyone receiving it not to open the attached file. Chelan and Douglas counties were recently moved to Phase 2 of the state’s COVID-19 recovery plan. The district recommends caution handling emails regarding COVID-19 that do not come from trustworthy sources.

Emergency responders in Grant County are mourning the death of the founder of Protection 1 EMT service in Quincy.

Protection 1 announced Brian Williamson’s death Sunday but did not release the cause. Williamson was in his early 40s. He founded Protection 1 in 2011 after working as a paramedic for Quincy Valley Medical Center.

Welcome back to the NCWLIFE Evening News. . .

Many public spaces remain closed due to COVID-19, and local fire stations aren’t immune… That’s why Douglas County Fire District 2 opted to show off its main East Wenatchee station in a recent virtual tour, hosted by one of its crewmembers. You can view the tour on YouTube or the district’s Facebook page. Here’s a sneak peek:

And that is a look at your local weather forecast, coming up next, tonight’s sports report with Eric Granstrom and more as the NCWLIFE Evening News continues right after this.

The Tampa Bay Rays are headed to the World Series after downing the Houston Astros 4-2 in Game 7 of the American League Championship Series Saturday…

ALCS MVP Randy Arozarena hit a two-run home run in the bottom of the first inning off Houston starter Lance McCullers, Jr. to give the Rays the early lead.  Former Mariner Mike Zunino added to it with a solo home run in the second and sacrifice fly-RBI in the 6th to put Tampa Bay up 4-nothing. 

Zunino says it’s a pretty surreal feeling to be headed to his first-ever World Series…

Charlie Morton was stellar on the mound, lasting 5-and-2/3rds innings of two-hit, shutout ball with 6-strikeouts. Tampa Bay’s Game 7 victory Saturday came after being up in the series 3-oh and losing three-straight to Houston.  Manager Kevin Cash says things got a little tight…

This will be the Ray’s 2nd World Series in franchise history.  Tampa Bay lost to Philadelphia in the 2008 Fall Classic 4-games-to-1.

The Dodgers will represent the National League after coming back to beat Atlanta 4-3 in Sunday’s Game 7 of the NLCS…

Enrique Hernandez hit a game-tying home run in the 6th inning on a 2-2 pitch off of reliever A.J. Minter.  Then in the 7th Cody Bellinger hit homer on a 2-2 pitch off reliever Chris Martin to provide the Dodgers the margin of victory…

Corey Seager was named the NLCS MVP after hitting 5-home runs and 15-RBI’s over the series.  He and manager Dave Roberts say winning a Game 7 is pretty fun…

Julio Urias worked 3-innings of perfect relief to earn the victory.  By the way, in the excitement over his go-ahead home run in the 7th inning, Bellinger jumped into the air and smashed forearms together with Hernandez, dislocating his right shoulder.  He says he’ll be fine for Game 1 of the World Series Tuesday, which will be at 6:09pm on FOX from Globe Life Field in Arlington, Texas.

While the Seahawks didn’t play last weekend because of their bye, they did gain a little room in the NFC West thanks to the 49ers…

Jimmy Garoppolo bounced back from a miserable performance a week ago against Miami and threw three touchdown passes to lead San Francisco past the L-A Rams 24-16 on Sunday Night Football.

Garoppolo finished 23-for-33 for 268-yards with touchdown passes to George Kittle, Deebo Samuel and Brandon Aiyuk.

It was a rough night for Jared Goff, who completed just 19-of-38 passes for 198-yards, two touchdowns and an interception. 

The Rams fell to 4-and-2 with the loss while the 49ers improved to 3-and-3.  The 3-and-2 Arizona Cardinals play the Dallas Cowboys tonight on Monday Night Football.  That game kicks off at 5:15 on ESPN.

Seattle leads the NFC West with a 5-and-oh record and will play at Arizona Sunday at 1:05.

Here’s what we have on-tap this week on the NCWLIFE Channel…

We’ll bring you live coverage of a Candidate’s Forum from the LocalTel Events Center at Pybus Market Wednesday night at 6 o’clock.

Hockey Night Thursday features a game from last November 30th between your Wenatchee Wild and the Langley Rivermen at 7 o’clock.
