Tonight, just before 8:30pm, Spokane Police patrol officers responded to a vehicle vs. pedestrian crash at 4th and Maple in downtown Spokane. Just prior to the crash, multiple people had called in reporting two disorderly males in the road at the location. Once on scene, officers discovered the victim had already been transported to the hospital to be treated for his injuries and all witnesses had already left the scene.
