Witnesses helped Spokane police arrest a suspect in a hit-and-run injury accident in north Spokane on Monday afternoon.

Roderick Thomas, 25, was booked into Spokane County Jail on Monday evening, facing a single count of leaving the scene of an injury accident. Thomas was apprehended following a collision that occurred at the intersection of Cedar Street and Wabash Avenue around 3 p.m., according to a news release.

Thomas was taken into custody without incident. The victim driver was taken to a hospital for treatment of injuries that are not thought to be life-threatening.
