Driver arrested after pedestrians struck near Gonzaga

Two pedestrians suffered head injuries Saturday when a car struck them near the Gonzaga University campus.

Sarah Elizabeth Burford, 33, is to appear in Spokane County Superior Court this afternoon via video from the jail, where she was booked after the crash at North Hamilton Street and East Sharp Avenue. Police believe she was drunk at the time of the crash but are “waiting on toxicology results to determine her specific level of impairment,” police said.

A 21-year-old man and a 19-year-old woman were injured in the crash, which occurred just before midnight.

The man has been released from the hospital; the woman is in intensive care with serious injuries but is in stable condition, police said.

Anyone who witnessed the crash is asked to call Spokane police Cpl. Dave Adams at (509) 835-4567.
