A car traveling at high speeds crashed Wednesday night on a South Hill slope, rolling onto its roof and leaving a trail of parts and debris behind it.

Spokane police Officer Teresa Fuller, the department’s spokeswoman, said that witnesses reported the vehicle traveling at close to or exceeding 100 mph prior to the crash, which occurred southbound in the vicinity of Monroe Street and Sixth Avenue near Shriners Hospital for Children at around 11:30 p.m. At that speed, and on the undulating terrain, the vehicle bottomed out at least twice before flipping over, Fuller said.

The driver of the vehicle, Isaac Vincelli, 31, exited and committed himself to an area hospital. He was later located and charged with driving under the influence, Fuller said.
