The driver of the BMW hit another vehicle near the area of 5th and Thor and continued driving. The driver of the victim vehicle was not injured but Troopers did terminate the pursuit. 

A short time later the vehicle was located in downtown Spokane at Main and Bernard. The occupants of the car fled on foot and police set up a perimeter to locate them. Police say there were four suspects and they were able to capture three, including the two primary suspects. The driver of the BMW was located at his residence. He was later identified as 22-year-old Petr Karapetr.
