Local Authorities Looking For Suspect Who Fled Traffic Stop

SPOKANE VALLEY, Wash. - Right now authorities are looking for a suspect who fled the scene of a routine traffic stop Monday night in the Otis Orchards area. 

At approximately 11:45 p.m. officers attempted to pull over the driver of a blue 1987 Chevy pickup at Euclid & Barker after they saw the driver pull the pickup out of a driveway without its lights on.

Rather than pulling over, the suspect drove off down a side street and headed toward the Union Pacific railroad tracks. The driver stopped alongside the tracks, jumped out and ran.

Spokane County Sheriff's deputies, WSP troopers, and Liberty Lake Police all responded, with the assistance of a K-9 unit, and set up a perimeter in an attempt to apprehend the suspect, but lost the tracks.

There was no word on a description of the suspect.

The pickup has been impounded. Authorities say they will follow-up with the registered owner, but they say the vehicle may have been stolen.
