ATV driver facing charges in passenger’s death


A 30-year-old woman died in an ATV accident Saturday night, and the driver faces a felony count of vehicular homicide.

The Spokane County Sheriff’s Office said 32-year-old Christopher Patrick Arnold was driving a 2010 Polaris Razor, a two-seat ATV, on private property in the 18200 block of South Molter Road about 10:45 p.m., when it went off an embankment and dropped about nine feet. The passenger was killed; her identity will be released following an autopsy.

Deputies said they smelled alcohol on Arnold’s breath, and he was driving the ATV with a suspended license.
