A driver who sideswiped several cars and then plowed into the Davenport Hotel late Saturday has been arrested on charges of driving under the influence and hit and run.
According to the Spokane Police Department, 41-year-old Alecia C. Crawford was driving west on Sprague when she hit a parked car and a tree near Sprague and Howard just before 11 p.m. Saturday. She kept driving and hit a taxi near Sprague and Post, then hit a Mustang before jumping the sidewalk and hitting the Davenport Hotel. A large planter was broken and the building had minor damage, according to a Police Department press release.
Crawford was taken to the hospital for treatment of minor injuries, said the press release. The people in the cars she hit were not injured.
