Spokane Police investigate stabbing that also involved a vehicle/pedestrian crash. Initial reports indicated a possible domestic violence incident where good Samaritans intervened. Officers have now made contact with the subject who stabbed the driver. He’s now being treated at a local hospital for non-life threatening injuries related to the crash.

On 10/11/2014, just before 7 p.m., Spokane Police officers responded to the report of a stabbing in the 2000 block of west 7th. The initial investigation on scene indicated that two people had witnessed a possible domestic violence incident between a man and a woman in a vehicle. The witnesses decided to intervene and were subsequently struck by the vehicle while trying to do so. At some point, one of the witnesses stabbed the driver of the vehicle.

The statements of each party involved were differing, so the investigation into what transpired is on-going. The subject who stabbed the driver initially fled the scene, but contacted Spokane Police this morning to give his statement. He is currently being treated for injuries consistent with getting hit by a vehicle, but they are non-life threatening.

At this point, police have contacted all individuals that were directly involved in the incident and are not looking for any outstanding subjects. Anyone who may have witnessed or may have additional information regarding this incident are asked to call Crime Check at 509.456.2233.
