Cab driver accused of felony hit-and-run

A cab driver is accused of hitting a pedestrian and driving away in downtown Spokane late Tuesday.

Lucas M. Blum, 31, alias McElroy, was driving a white minivan when he struck a  woman who was trying to cross Stevens Street while westbound on Sprague Avenue about 10:15 p.m.

The woman said she tried to obtain the driver's information, but he refused, then drove away. She noted his license plate number and identified him after speaking with a representative of Spokane Cab, police say.

Blum was booked into the Spokane County Jail on a felony charge of hit-and-run.

He obtained a business license for a taxi service on March 6, according to City of Spokane records.
