The Spokane Police Department is investigating a serious vehicle vs. pedestrian collision that occurred this morning on Monroe near Carlisle. The road is now open, but investigators are still looking into what, if any, charges or infractions the involved parties could face.


This morning, May 16th, 2016, just after 7:30am, the Spokane Police Department responded to a collision involving a pickup truck and pedestrian near the intersection of Monroe and Carlisle. Due to the serious nature of the pedestrian’s injuries, the Major Crimes Unit responded to investigate the crash.


The initial investigation revealed the truck was traveling southbound on Monroe, just north of Carlisle. The pedestrian ran into the driver’s path and was struck by the truck. It does not appear the pedestrian was crossing at a crosswalk. The pedestrian, who suffered several broken bones, was transported to an area hospital in stable condition.


It did not appear the driver was impaired at the time of the crash. Anyone who may have witnessed the crash and has not spoken to police is asked to call Crime Check at 509-456-2233.
