Spokane Police Investigating Injury Collision with Vehicular Assault Charges

Spokane Police officers responded to the intersection of Ash and Queen just after 1:00 p.m. on 02/21/16. When officers arrived they found two vehicles in the yard of the residence on the southwest corner of the intersection. One driver was being treated by bystanders for his injuries. The other driver had fled on foot.

Further investigation revealed that the driver of a dark green Infiniti had struck a curb in the 4300 block of N. Division, blowing out the right front tire. The driver continued north on Division with several other drivers calling SPD about his erratic driving.

The driver turned west on Queen, leaving scrape marks from his rim, the entire time. The driver drove through the stop sign at Maple, narrowly missing a car. He then went through the stop sign at Ash, colliding with a white Chevrolet Impala.

The driver of the Infiniti, later identified as 24 year old Nicholas Jenkins, fled on foot from the crash.

Citizens in the area kept an eye on Jenkins allowing officers to set up a perimeter and locate him.

The driver of the Impala was transported to a hospital with non-life threatening injuries.

Spokane PD would like to thank the citizens that called 911 and followed Jenkins, before and after the crash. Input from citizens was critical in helping officers locating Jenkins. Jenkins refused medical attention at the scene. He was booked in to jail for vehicular assault.

Anyone that witnessed any of Jenkins’ driving, especially the near collision at Queen and Maple, is encouraged to call Crime Check at 456.2233.
