A man suspected of slamming a pickup truck into another car in downtown Spokane this morning fled the scene and drove down a narrow sidewalk before abandoning the vehicle and walking away, security camera footage shows.
The fleeing driver was caught on cameras operated by Cowles Co., which owns The Spokesman-Review. The man drove down a sidewalk along Sprague Avenue within inches of the Chronicle Building, which is owned by Cowles.
Police are investigating the incident, which happened around 10:30 a.m., and have towed the truck, said Spokane Police Officer Teresa Fuller. Police also contacted the registered owner of the vehicle, Fuller said. She was not aware of any arrests yet.
A woman in the car that was hit at the intersection of Sprague Avenue and Lincoln Street was injured, said Fuller, who did not have further details.
