SVPD: Alcohol Factor In Pedestrian Hit And Run; Seriously Injured Teen Talks With KHQ

SPOKANE VALLEY, Wash. - Spokane Valley Police say alcohol played a factor in an early morning hit and run that left one teenager seriously injured. Authorities tell KHQ that at around 3:15 am Saturday, 18-year-old Cody Washburn was struck by a hit and run driver while walking on 4th Ave between Adams Rd and Progress Rd in Spokane Valley.

According to traffic investigators, Washburn was struck by a 1996 1-ton Dodge pickup truck driven by 42-year-old Steven A. Black of Spokane Valley. Black fled the scene after the collision and returned home in the east 10800 block of Trent Ave. Investigators were able to trace Black to his residence because his truck's front license plate was left behind at the scene due to the impact. 

Washburn received serious injuries, a fractured back and internal bleeding, and is being treated at a local hospital. 

When contacted at his residence approximately 25 minutes after the crash, Black exhibited signs of being under the influence. Investigators subsequently arrested Black for vehicular assault and obtained a blood draw. The blood sample will be sent to and analyzed by the WA State Toxicology Laboratory, which will take around one month to receive the results back.   Investigators also learned that Black's 10-year-old son was present with him in his truck at the time of the collision.

Black was arrested and booked into the Spokane County Jail on one count of felony hit and run.  The investigation into the collision continues and once the blood results come back from the toxicology lab, Black could face an additional felony charge of vehicular assault.
