Alaskan Bush People Joshua Bam Bam Brown fatal car wreck in Washington

Alaskan Bush People star Joshua “Bam Bam” Brown was involved in a head-on collision in Washington on Friday that resulted in the death of a 24-year-old woman who was a passenger in the other vehicle.

Bam Bam was driving north on State Route 97 in north central Washington, about three miles north of Riverside between Omak and Tonasket. “Washington State Troopers say at about 2:30 PM, 38-year-old Gabbriella Garcia Harrison of Loomis was going south on SR 97,” iFIBER One News reports, “when she lost control and crossed the center line into the opposite lane of travel.”

Bam Bam reportedly “steered to the right to avoid the crash and both vehicles struck each other’s corners.”

A Washington State Trooper Twitter account shared a photo of the accident and alerted followers that the accident caused State Route 97 to be shut down. “FULLY BLOCKED SR 97 MP 303 just 3 miles north of Riverside,” the tweet reads. “A 2-car fatality collision with no traffic alternate routes. Expect delays.”
