Elderly man in morning crash identified
A man crashed into parked trailer after suffering a medical condition while driving near the intersection of Nevada Street and Empire Boulevard this morning.
He was pronounced dead at a local hospital.
Tommy V. Luce, 73, drove over a concrete median and hit a trailer and an unoccupied truck in a parking lot near the intersection about 5:15 a.m., said Spokane police Officer Teresa Fuller.
Luce had just pulled out of the parking lot of the nearby 7-Eleven, Fuller said.
“He’d just bought a big ol’ cup of coffee and doughnut,” Fuller said.
