Man accused of DUI after crashing into 6 vehicles in downtown Spokane

UPDATED: Mon., Jan. 15, 2018

Police arrested a man Monday who they believe is responsible for crashing into six vehicles in downtown Spokane, and climbing on top of others.

David V. Wyman, 33, is facing six counts of hit and run, possession of a stolen vehicle, and driving under the influence. He was arrested at about 5 p.m. Monday.

Spokane police officers were called to the scene of a vehicle collision on Main Avenue and Lincoln Street at about 1 p.m., where officers learned that a male responsible for causing the crash left on foot, police said in a news release.

Several witnesses apparently followed Wyman east on Main through downtown and stayed on the phone with police, the release says. He was followed to Post Street and Main Avenue, where witnesses said he was climbing on top of vehicles in the middle of the roadway and attempting to enter other vehicles.

Arresting officers said Wyman was acting strange, and they suspected he was under the influence of drugs. He was transported to a hospital before being booked into Spokane County Jail.

Officers said the vehicle Wyman was driving was reported stolen from Wellpinit about an hour before. It was also discovered that Wyman had crashed into six other vehicles.
