Crash in Spokane Valley leads to felony charges

SPOKANE VALLEY, Wash.- One woman is in the Spokane County Jail following a crash at north Argonne and west Broadway in Spokane Valley. It happened just before midnight on Sunday.

According to officers on the scene, the woman had taken her boyfriend's car illegally and was driving erratically in that area. WSP troopers say they tried to pull the woman over for a traffic stop and she wouldn't stop. A short pursuit followed, then quickly ended when the woman lost control of her vehicle and crashed into a traffic signal pole at the southwest intersection of Argonne and Broadway.

KHQ talked with witnesses in a nearby apartment who said they heard a loud crash and when they ran outside saw troopers with guns drawn approaching the vehicle. When troopers saw the driver was a woman with injuries, they helped her out and allowed her to lay on the ground. The woman suffered a broken arm and will be charged with Felony Eluding Officers and Felony Possession of Stolen Vehicle.

KHQ talked with the woman's boyfriend at the scene who said he was upset by the situation. He says he does have insurance, but isn't sure if it covers a crash like this. He's owned the car for two years.

The intersection of Argonne and Broadway was shut down for a good part of the night as Avista crews worked to fix the traffic signal.

After a brief trip to an area hospital, the woman was taken to the Spokane County Jail.
