Fatal hit and run victim identified

SPOKANE, Wash. - The Spokane County Sheriff's Office has identified the 19-year-old woman who died as a result of Friday's Spokane Valley hit and run collision as Ashley M. Jennings.  The Spokane County Medical Examiner's Office released the name after autopsy was held Monday morning.

Jennings who was injured in a hit and run collision Friday morning died overnight  Saturday at a downtown hospital.

A 22-year-old male who was also hit remains in the hospital in satisfactory condition.  He suffered broken legs and other injuries in the 3 a.m. crash in the 14200 block of East Rockwell.

According to authorities the two were in the roadway when they were struck by a 1979 Chrysler Cordoba driven by Otis Orchards resident Alex C. Walker, 19.

Walker reportedly fled the scene, leaving the victims lying in the roadway.  A neighbor heard the collision and called 911.

Walker turned himself into Spokane Valley Police about 45 minutes later, but his car wasn't found until a relative called to report the vehicle hidden in his yard.

Walker was arrested and booked into the Spokane County Jail on two counts each of Vehicular Assault and Hit and Run/Injury Accident.

A Sheriff's Office spokesperson says the charges relating to the Jennings will likely will be amended to Vehicular Homicide.  He remains in custody at the Spokane County Jail.
