SPD: Woman Crashed Stolen Car Into Parked Pickup

SPOKANE, Wash. - A 24-year-old Spokane woman was arrested early Monday after she crashed the stolen Honda she was driving into a parked pickup in the 700 block of West Wedgewood.

Rachel A. Banks was driving a stolen Honda shortly after midnight when she crashed into the back of a Ford pickup parked in a residential driveway. 

A neighbor came outside after hearing the crash and saw her and a male passenger run away.

Deputies responded to the report of the hit and run crash and obtained a description of the two. 

Deputy Gavin Pratt found Banks and 24-year-old Randy A. Fisher Jr. walking near Monroe and Avon. 

When they ran their names through police records, the deputies learned Banks was wanted on a driving while license suspended warrant and Fisher for city theft.

The neighbor at the crash scene came to Monroe and Avon and identified Banks as the driver and Fisher as the passenger that he had seen run away. 

Deputy Dave Westlake arrested both suspects and drove them to jail.  A search of Banks' purse revealed a drug scale, a meth pipe, a baggie containing prescription drug capsules, shaved vehicle keys and a lug nut key.

Westlake booked Banks on her warrant as well as on charges of Second-Degree Possession of Stolen Property, Possession of Controlled Substance/Methamphetamine, Possession of Controlled Substance/Schedule IV Prescription Drug, and Vehicle Collision (Hit and Run).  He booked Fisher on his outstanding warrant only.
