For those who may not know, a Harrowbed is a machine used to scoop up and stack haybales.

You've probably seen one before, just didn't know what it was called. One of these machines was involved in a crash just outside of Moses Lake Monday, Memorial Day.

Grant County Deputies responded to the intersection of two county roads near the city around 10:30AM Monday for a report of a crash between and SUV and a Harrowbed.

Officials say the SUV, driven by 37-year-old Rachael Bylin of Enumclaw, was headed south and failed to stop an a stop sign at an intersection. Her Dodge Durango collided with a 1978 New Holland Harrowbed driven by 68-year-old Virgil Redwine of Moses Lake.
