Owner who reported car stolen, arrested for False Reporting, Hit and Run

SPOKANE, Wash.- Spokane Police Officers have arrested and booked Christopher Robinson into jail on charges of Hit and Run and False Reporting Thursday evening. The arrest stems from a March 31st crash at 4400 West Strong Road. Police responded to the area and found a vehicle on fire in the woods. The crash forced Avista to cut power to the Indian Trail area.  

At the time of the crash police say the driver was going in excess of 100 miles per hour. That driver drove over an embankment and the car plummeted 200 feet below then burst into flames. When police responded, they say they saw the driver flee the scene and leave in a passerby's car. He was later seen at the Service Station at Francis and Elgin.

The next day, the registered owner, Christopher Robinson, called police to report the vehicle stolen.  At that time, police did not know that Robinson was actually the one driving the car during that March 31st crash.

An officer worked on the case on his off-duty time and was able to contact one of the witnesses when he returned to work. The witness identified Robinson as the driver of the vehicle the night of the crash, and said she gave Robinson a ride after the collision.  

Officers responded to Robinson's home Thursday night and arrested him on felony Hit and Run, along with False Reporting, charges. Robinson remains in the Spokane County Jail and will make an initial court appearance Friday.
