Man Taken To Hospital With Life Threatening Injuries After Being Hit By A Car
Spokane County Sheriff's Office Press Release:
Spokane Valley Sheriff's Deputies responded to a vehicle vs. pedestrian collision on Sprague Ave. east of Pines Road. Witnesses told deputies a 23-year-old male was waiting for the bus on the north side of Sprague when he ran across west and eastbound lanes of travel southbound on Sprague Avenue.
A vehicle traveling eastbound on Sprague, in the far left lane of travel, struck the pedestrian on the driver's side of the vehicle. The pedestrian struck the driver's side window of the vehicle.
Collision investigators responded and are currently diagramming the scene. The 43-year-old male driver has been cooperative and impairment is not believed to be a factor. The pedestrian was transported to a local hospital in critical condition and the investigation is ongoing.
Emergency crews responded to the intersection of Sprague and Pines Wednesday evening after a car struck a pedestrian.
Witnesses say the man ran into traffic. He was taken to the hospital with life threatening injuries.
Westbound Sprague at Pines is expected to be closed for a while as police process the scene.
KHQ has a crew on scene gathering more information and we will update this story as soon as we get any additional information.
