SPOKANE, Wash. - The Spokane County Sheriff's Office is asking for your help in locating the van involved in a Friday road rage collision in which two people on a motorcycle were injured.

Friday, a couple on a motorcycle, driven by Dieter Meyer, was injured when the van's driver backed over the motorcycle knocking the female passenger to the pavement and pinning Meyer beneath the van. Both Meyer and the woman suffered injuries in the collision.

Detectives say the suspect vehicle is a full-size Chevrolet conversion van, black and silver, described by witnesses as a "beater." The Washington license plate is 102YVY.

The license plate has been traced to a Post Falls, Idaho owner, but he has sold the van and does not remember the buyer's name. 

His description of the buyer fits that of the suspect in Friday's road rage incident and says he remembers the man lives in or near Cheney.

Anyone with information about this van or its owner is asked to call Crime Check at 456-2233.

A Friday night road rage incident between the driver of a full-size van and a couple on a motorcycle ended with the two motorcycle riders being treated for cuts, scrapes and other injuries.

According to the driver of the motorcycle, Dieter Meyer and several other non-involved witnesses, the van and motorcycle were southbound on the Newport Highway when the van abruptly moved into Meyer's lane forcing Meyer to swerve to avoid a collision. Meyer pulled alongside the van and yelled at its male driver that he had almost hit them.

The van's driver made a gesture of a gun using his fingers and pointed it at Meyer. The van and Meyer proceeded south on Division, but at Price, the van's driver again veered into the motorcycle's lane and forcing it to swerve to avoid a crash.

At the 7900 block of North Division, traffic was backed up and the van was forced to stop. Meyer parked his motorcycle in the driveway of a motel and his female passenger went up to the van and began berating the driver for "almost killing them." >>More
