Woman struck on Division Street dies

A woman who was struck by another driver after she crashed her car and tried crossing Division on foot last month has died.

Micheala Larson, 38, died Dec. 3, Spokane police announced today. She was northbound on Division Street on Nov. 20 when she lost control and struck a median about 75 feet north of Walton Avenue.

Larson got out of the car and was talking on her cell phone when she was struck in the roadway by another driver. No charges were filed. 

The crash occurred the same night that a Canadian woman in town on a shopping trip was struck by a suspected drunken driver in downtown Spokane.

Elaine Price-Cornell, 63, died Nov. 28.

Cameron B. Olsness, 24, (left) is charged with vehicular homicide and felony hit and run. He's been out of jail since Dec. 8 on $50,000 bond. (Read more here.)
