Man Hospitalized After Accident

A 44-year-old Spokane man was in serious condition Tuesday after being hit by a car Monday, the Washington State Patrol said.

Juan M. Taschiquin suffered head injuries and a broken pelvis in the accident, which occurred shortly before 6 p.m. at E12114 Fourth Avenue. He was taken to Valley Hospital and Medical Center, where he remained late Tuesday.

Troopers said Taschiquin was walking across the street and stepped in front of a car driven by David Beecher, 37, of Veradale.

Beecher was not injured and will not be cited for the accident, troopers said.
