Police arrest burglary suspect following crash

SPOKANE, Wash. - A burglary suspect has been arrested after crashing his car into another vehicle in the 5500 block N. Cincinnati.

Police were performing an emphasis patrol in Northeast Spokane when an officer noticed the suspect, 24-year-old Michael Bridges, apparently attempting to break into parked cars and houses.

After making eye contact with officers, Bridges fled in a black Chevrolet Caprice. One of the officers on scene attempted stop him, but Bridges quickly accelerated.

The officer terminated the pursuit at Perry and Rowan for fear that Bridges' driving posed a threat to the safety of the community. 

Bridges continued west on Rowan, past Nevada and into the oncoming lane at Cincinati, crashing into a vehicle, with his vehicle eventually stopping in a nearby yard.

Bridges attempted to flee on foot, but was arrested and transported to the hospital with minor injuries.

The driver of the car Bridges collided with was also transported to the hospital with minor injuries. A 2-year-old child with that driver was not injured.

In late October, during another emphasis patrol, police attempted to stop a car for a traffic violation when the 17-year-old driver fled from police only to crash into a van after a running a stop sign.

The juvenile driver attempted to flee on foot, but was arrested and police were able to identify Bridges as a passenger in that car.
