Traffic Unit Investigators at the Scene of a Two-Vehicle Collision on University and Valleyway


Spokane Valley Traffic Unit Investigators continue to investigate a two-vehicle collision on University Rd. at Valleyway.  The four people in the vehicles were transported to the hospital, one with a possible serious injury.  


This morning, at approximately 10:45 am., Spokane Valley Deputies responded to a reported vehicle crash in the intersection of University and Valleyway in the Spokane Valley.  


The caller stated two vehicles were involved, with one that rolled into the front yard of a home.  


Arriving Deputies found a white Chevy S-10 truck on its side in the front yard of a residence and a silver Dodge Caravan with heavy front end damage in the roadway.  They contacted the three occupants of the Caravan and the sole occupant of the S-10.  All four were injured in the violent collision.


Spokane Valley Fire and AMR personnel responded to the scene to provide medical care.  All of the persons involved, one with possible serious injuries, were transported to the hospital for additional care and evaluation. 


Spokane Valley Traffic Unit Investigators were called to the scene to conduct the investigation.


Initial information indicates the S-10 was traveling west on Valleyway.  The adult male driver failed to stop for the stop sign at University and traveled into the intersection.  


The Caravan, traveling north on University, collided with the side of the S-10, causing it to roll into the front yard of a residence.   A piece of debris flew from the pickup and broke a window of the home. 


The driver (suspect) of the S-10 admitted to being a user of illicit drugs, and drug paraphernalia was located, but he stated he had not used drugs today.  


Investigators developed probable cause to request and obtain a search warrant for a sample of the suspect’s blood.  


Depending on the extent of the victim’s injuries and the investigation's findings, the suspect could face charges up to Vehicular Assault after receiving medical care.      


This remains an active investigation.  No further information is available at this time.
