A 19-year-old woman struck by a car Friday while walking along a sidewalk in northwest Spokane died as a result of her injuries, according to the Spokane County Medical Examiner’s Office.
Caroline Hoch was rushed to a Spokane hospital following the noon accident along Assembly Street near Northwest Boulevard and died later that day. Hoch graduated in June from Lewis and Clark High School.
The driver, who also died, apparently had a medical problem, which led to him losing control of his vehicle. He was identified as Kenneth Danel, 78, of northwest Spokane County.
