A van plowed through an intersection Monday morning, hitting two vehicles and killing a woman in downtown Spokane.

The woman, described to be in her mid-to-late 50s by witnesses, was crossing Division Street on Third Avenue near Dick’s Hamburgers just after 10 a.m., when witnesses say a golden-colored van exiting Interstate 90 at the westbound off-ramp failed to stop, hitting a blue SUV and a white Subaru sedan stopped at the stoplight before hitting the woman, dragging her under the vehicle.

A bystander who declined to give his full name, said he and a group of about “eight or nine” people tried to get the woman out from under the van, but were unsuccessful. He said when he contacted the woman she appeared unconscious and was unresponsive/Jonathan Glover, SR. More here.
