A woman was taken to a hospital via ambulance with non-life threatening injuries after the 6:15 p.m. accident, said Spokane Police Department spokeswoman Monique Cotton. Her son, who was with her, crossed the street ahead of her safely. The road was closed briefly as emergency workers cleared the scene.
