Local authorities: crash ends pursuit; suspects injured

OFFICIAL PRESS RELEASE: Two men were treated for minor injuries Monday night after one of them crashed the Subaru they were in while trying to elude a pursuing police corporal.

David Ellis was patrolling the area of Sixth and University about 8:30 p.m. Monday when he passed the Subaru which was being driven without headlights.  He turned and attempted to stop the car, but the driver took off, running a red light at University and Fourth and then going west on Sprague at about 50 mph in the 35 mph zone.

As the corporal attempted to keep up with the suspects, the driver attempted to make a high speed turn northbound onto Gillis.  The car struck the sidewalk on the east side of the roadway and stopped.

The driver, 30-year-old Jason M. Tittman of Spokane, took off running while Ellis detained the suspect.  Officer Rustin Olson later found the driver who was being shoved off the front porch of a home by its residents.

Tittman was bleeding from the mouth and told the officers he fell on his face while scaling a fence.  The passenger, a 26-year-old Spokane Valley man, was complaining of stomach pain caused by the car's impact with the sidewalk. 

Both men were eventually taken to a hospital to be checked out.  The passenger was later released without charges, but Tittman was booked into the Spokane County Jail on a felony count of Attempting to Elude a Police Vehicle and a misdemeanor count of Third-Degree Driving while License Suspended.  He was also served two Spokane Municipal Court warrants charging him with theft and possession of marijuana.

Officers were unable to contact the registered owner of the Subaru Monday night.  They did recover a ring of shaved keys from inside the vehicle.
