A 33-year-old Soap Lake man is lucky to be alive after trying to pass two vehicles in a no passing zone, hitting one, and flying through the air like Evil Knievel, then slamming the pavement.

State Patrol troopers report Tanner Parmer will be facing several citations after his failed attempt to pass in a no passing zone Sunday according to the Columbia Basin Herald.

Around 2:15pm, he was a mile East of Quincy on Route 28, when he zoomed past two other cars in front of him. However, as he was passing, a large Dodge pickup began to turn off the highway, and Parmer slammed into the side the 2017 pickup.

The truck driver was not hurt, but Parmer went sailing through the air, landing by the shoulder. He was taken to an area hospital but no word on his condition. He will be not only cited for passing in a no passing zone, but also riding his Kawasaki ZXR with a suspended license.
