Reckless Driver Causes Three-Vehicle Crash in Spokane

SPOKANE VALLEY, Wash. - The intersection of Sprague and Fancher remains closed after a major crash involving three cars at 10:30 p.m. Thursday. Authorities expect the intersection to remain closed until at least 8:00 or 9:00 Friday morning while they finish their investigation.

Police say Penny Harrison was driving a black car and running from police on Sprague at speeds of 100+ miles per hour. When the officer saw the speeds and saw Harrison blow through a stoplight, he terminated the pursuit.

When Harrison crossed Fancher on Sprague she hit two cars. Harrison's car caught fire trapping both her and her passenger, Antonio Mitchell, inside. After Police extinguished the fire, crews had to extricate both of them from the car.

A woman driving a red SUV was hit by Harrison which sent her car about 30 feet off the roadway. She also had to be extricated from her vehicle and police say she was unconscious when they made initial contact. All three were rushed to the hospital with none life threatening injuries.

The driver of the third car suffered only minor cuts.

Police say Mitchell has a couple warrants out for his arrest but couldn't say for what. They believe that could be a reason Harrison initially tried to get away from officers. Penny Harrison is charged with vehicular assault.
