An anonymous tip led Spokane police to a vehicle believed to have been involved in a hit-and-run Thursday night.

Early Friday, Spokane police asked the public to help identify the driver, who is alleged to have struck a pedestrian and fled the scene.

The tip led police to a vehicle and the vehicle’s driver. The driver is cooperating with police and being interviewed, according to a news release. No arrests have been made.

On Thursday around 8:30 p.m., a pedestrian was hit in a crash on Fourth Avenue and Maple Street in Spokane. Just before the crash multiple people called the police to report two disorderly men, according to a police news release.

By the time police arrived the victim already had been transported to the hospital and the witnesses had left the scene. Attempts to reach the witnesses who reported the crash were unsuccessful, according to the news release.

The man who was hit suffered a fracture and head injury.
