Spokane Valley

Monday was crash day

Monday was apparently a day for car crashes caused by drivers who pulled out in front of people. Yesterday at 2:35 p.m. an teenage girl pulled out in front of a police car at the Spokane Valley Police Precinct on East Sprague, causing a police sergeant to hit the girl's car broadside, according to a press release from Detective Dave Thornburg. Reporter Meghann Cuniff has more details on her blog here.

A bit later at around 3 p.m. a 46-year-old Spokane woman was heading north on Progress and was attempting to cross Broadway. She pulled out in front of a Honda scooter being driven by 75-year-old Charles Spurgeon of Spokane Valley. His scooter struck the side of the car driven by Kristin Melton. Spurgeon was wearing a helmet, but had trouble breathing and was taken to the hospital, Thornburg wrote. An investigation is ongoing.
