On 06-09-16 at approximately 1:35AM, SPD responded to a pedestrian collision near the intersection of Main and Browne. SPD Officers were the first emergency responders on scene, about two minutes after initial dispatch, and located an injured subject laying in the roadway. Officers immediately began first-aid, and care was later transferred to SFD and AMR paramedics. The pedestrian was transported to a local hospital with life-threatening injuries.

At this time traffic investigators are responding to the scene. The cause of the collision is still under investigation. Browne from Spokane Falls to Riverside, and Main from Bernard to Browne will be closed for several hours and citizens are asked to use alternate routes.

Anyone who witnessed the collision is asked to call crime check at 509-456-2233. Pedestrians are encouraged to wear bright clothing when walking at night, and use marked crosswalks where available. Drivers are asked to yield to pedestrians in crosswalks, and double check the intersection before proceeding through. With vigilance from pedestrians and the motoring public alike we can make Spokane’s roads safer for everyone.
