The Spokane Police Department is investigating a hit and run crash in the 1400 block of W Garland Ave.
Yesterday, shortly before 12:30 pm, officers responded to the 1400 block of W Garland Ave for the report of a vehicle crash. Prior to officers arriving on scene, multiple citizens called 911 to report the driver of one vehicle had fled the scene on foot. Once officers arrived, it was discovered the striking vehicle had been reported stolen. The stolen vehicle, a Chevy Impala, was traveling North on N Cedar St. It ran the stop sign at W Garland Ave striking a Toyota SUV which was traveling East on Garland. The SUV rolled over and the pregnant driver was injured. She was transported to the hospital with non-life threatening injuries. Officers checked the area for the suspect but were unable to locate him. An alert citizen was able to take a photo of the suspect as he fled, which is being released to the media. He is described as a white male 5ft 10in to 6ft tall and approximately 180 lbs to 200 lbs. He was wearing tan cargo shorts, a black beanie style hat and no shirt. He had a large tattoo on his left shoulder.
