UPDATE: BIG Crash In Spokane Valley Leaves Two In The Hospital

OFFICIAL PRESS RELEASE: Once again an impaired driver causes mayhem by taking out a power pole in the east 12900 block of 8th Avenue in the Spokane Valley. Around 03:12 am 26-year-old Nathaniel Lewis was driving his 1999 Subaru Impreza at a high rate of speed westbound when he lost control. The Impreza slid off the roadway striking a power pole, which caused a short power outage for some Spokane Valley residents.

After striking the pole, the Impreza struck a Chevy Tahoe that was parked along the roadway.  The Impreza continued to slide out of control and eventually came to rest in the driveway of 12924 E 8th Ave after impacting two parked vehicles there. Lewis had a passenger in his vehicle, 32-year-old Lucas Remington. Both occupants were wearing their seatbelts.

The sounds of the crashes woke several neighbors up. One of the neighbors saw Lewis get out of the Impreza and try to escape into a backyard. Remington was initially found unconscious in the vehicle. One of the neighbors contacted Lewis and told him to return to the vehicle. After they returned, Lewis got Remington out the vehicle and then they both fled the scene. However they were both apprehended a short time later by responding law enforcement units. 

Both Lewis and Remington were transported to Valley Hospital for treatment and in the end only received minor injuries from the collision. Lewis exhibited signs of intoxication and was placed under arrest for DUI. A blood sample was taken from him and will be sent to the Washington State Toxicology Laboratory for analysis. This process takes approximate 6 weeks to receive the results back. 

Lewis had a felony warrant out of Ellensburg for third degree assault and Remington had a local warrant for his arrest for possession of drugs with intent to deliver. After they were treated and released at the hospital, both individuals were booked into the Spokane County Jail on their warrants. Once the blood results on Lewis come back, he potentially faces additional DUI and hit and run charges.

PREVIOUS COVERAGE:

SPOKANE VALLEY, Wash. - Right now an investigation is underway in Spokane Valley after a vehicle crashed through a power pole, into two cars and came to a rest in the front yard of a home on East 8th. 

Police tell KHQ two men in the car - one of whom had an outstanding felony drug warrant - were traveling at a high rate of speed and lost control of the car causing it to crash.

The two men initially fled from the crash but were quickly detained and transported to Sacred Heart for their injuries.

Sheriff's deputies did not administer a breathalyzer at the scene, but they told KHQ's Blake Jensen they believe alcohol played a role in the crash.      

Police say the two men will be facing charges, but it won't be clear what they'll be charged with until an investigation is complete.
