Two people – a woman and a child – were injured Wednesday after they were struck by a vehicle in a north Spokane parking lot.
Spokane Fire crews were called to the scene of the collision, outside the Costco at 7619 N. Division St., shortly after 3:30 p.m. They extricated the two victims and transported them to the hospital for treatment of their injuries. The woman was in serious condition at the scene, said Spokane Police Department spokesman Officer John O’Brien.
The woman was in “very critical condition” and the child sufffered non-life-threatening injures, police said in a news release.
Police blocked off a section of the parking lot where the collision occurred and the driver was cooperating with the investigation, O’Brien said. Investigators are also interviewing several witnesses, he said.
Costco remained open for business while the investigation was underway.
