Driver faces DUI charges following pursuit, crash


















SPOKANE VALLEY, Wash. - A 22-year-old Spokane man faces charges of Driving While under the Influence of Alcohol and Attempting to Elude a Police Vehicle after his 90 plus mph escape attempt ended in a spectacular crash at Sprague and Lee about 11:40 p.m. Wednesday.

Cameron Trevino was not arrested Wednesday night, but was taken to a downtown hospital for treatment of minor injuries he suffered when he crashed his girlfriend's 2007 Saturn.  Two passengers in the car, a 22-year-old man and 15-year-old boy, also were not seriously injured.

A Spokane Valley police officer was patrolling the area of Sprague and Carnahan when he spotted the Saturn run a stop sign, tires squealing, as it turned westbound on Sprague. The officer caught up to the car and signaled it to stop with his emergency lights.

The driver pulled over and stopped, but began revving the engine as the officer approached on foot. Fearing the car would back into him, the officer retreated to his patrol car whereupon the driver of the Saturn accelerated away at 90 plus miles per hour and ran a red light at Altamont.

The officer pursued, but lost sight of the westbound car briefly. He then discovered the crash scene at Sprague and Lee.  The Saturn had left the north side of Sprague, careened through the parking lot of a Zip's Drive-In, and then struck two dump trucks and a Ford Crown Victoria on a used car lot next door.

The Saturn had sheered off a power pole and come to rest on its roof.  The officer saw Trevino crawling away from the vehicle to the north and the 22-year-old ejected partially through the rear window. 

The teen passenger was outside the car and had tried to run away as well.

A Spokane Police Officer captured Trevino whose escape was interrupted when he caught a business security cable across his neck.

Police are continuing to investigate.
