High Speed Police Chase In Spokane Valley Ends In Crash

OFFICIAL PRESS RELEASE: Thursday night around 11:22 pm, Spokane Valley Police attempted to stop a black 2001 Ford Taurus that was driving erratically and at a high rate of speed in the area of Sprague and Bowdish. The driver failed to yield/stop to Officer Justin Elliott's emergency lights and siren.

The Taurus continued westbound on Sprague Ave reaching speeds of 70-80 mph. The Taurus turned north onto Thierman Rd and then went east on Broadway Ave. The Taurus continued to elude police, again reaching speeds of 70-80 mph, and blew threw several intersections against red traffic signals as it continued eastbound on Broadway.

At the intersection of Sullivan Rd, the Taurus again went through a red light and was "T-boned" by a 2001 Buick Regal driven by Richard Duval (53) of Veradale.  Both vehicles violently spun counterclockwise post-collision and ended up on the southeast corner of the intersection. After the crash, the Taurus still had quite a bit of momentum left over that it severely damaged the large concrete and steel Numerica Credit Union sign located on that particular corner.

Duval suffered only minor injuries from the collision.  The fleeing driver, identified as Bradley Bowerman (45) of Spokane Valley, received a couple of large cuts to his head and was taken into custody without further incident. Bowerman was treated and releases at a local hospital and was then booked into the Spokane County jail for attempting to elude police and driving on a suspended license.
