Pedestrian hurt in crosswalk at Maple and Boone

Spokane police this morning said they are trying to determine what happened in a traffic accident this morning in which a pedestrian was struck in a crosswalk on Maple Street at Boone Avenue.

The pedestrian, who was not identified, has a broken leg and was in stable condition later at a Spokane hospital, police said.

He was crossing Maple in the crosswalk when he was struck about 2:30 a.m. today by a northbound vehicle, a 2000 Ford Contour.

The driver and pedestrian provided conflicting information about how the accident occurred, and police said the scene had no evidence to corroborate the statements. There were no witnesses, police said.
