The Spokane County Sheriff's Office says the driver who had his leg severed in a serious crash on Argonne and Bigelow Gulch Wednesday evening is now in stable condition. 

Investigators determined a northbound 2000 Mazda pickup crossed over the centerline and struck a southbound flatbed trailer being towed by a full-size pickup.  The trailer sliced through the Mazda, striking the driver, severing a portion of his leg and the seat belt he was wearing.  The Mazda rolled and the driver was ejected.  Crews on scene told KHQ the driver is lucky to be alive.

The other driver was not injured. 

The crash is still under investigation but do not believe impairment was a factor.
