SPOKANE, Wash. -

Deputies and firefighters responded to a car crash in Spokane Valley Monday afternoon near the intersection of 4th and Blake. 

Deputies say the SUV was heading south on Blake when it was struck by another car, causing it to flip onto its top in a nearby yard. One person was able to get out of the SUV, but the driver had to be pulled out through the rear lift gate. Injuries appear to be minor. 

After hitting the SUV, the driver of the car fled the scene. His vehicle was recovered 4 blocks away. He has been identified as 21-year-old Dustin Besaw. Besaw did have his 1-year-old infant son in the car with him at the time of the crash. Once he fled the car, he took his son and tried getting away, but was quickly found and arrested on a felony charge of Hit and Run. His son was not injured in the crash.
