UPDATE: Two men will be charged with vehicular assault after a crash on the South Hill Monday night. Spokane Police responded to that crash in the area of 29th and Pittsburg just before 11:00pm. Witnesses said the two cars were racing west bound and both lost control. 

The driver of one of the vehicles, 23-year-old Vyacheslav Bychkov, crossed over the east bound lanes and then slammed into a tree which hit the passenger side of the car. He had a female passenger who was taken to the hospital with non-life threatening injuries.
