South Hill crash injures driver, 3 children

A driver was in critical condition and his three children were injured Thursday after he lost control of his car, which vaulted into a telephone pole before coming to rest on its top near 32nd Avenue and Ray Street.

Spokane police and fire officials did not release the name of the 24-year-old man, who was transported to Sacred Heart Medical Center and the cause of the crash remains under investigation.

Joseph Maine, 22, and his 20-year-old brother, Danny Murinko, were working in their backyard when they heard the driver accelerate while driving a Dodge Stratus northbound on Ray.

 “Hearing those little kids screaming. I wouldn’t wish that on anyone. I almost wanted to cry,” Maine said.
