PRESS RELEASE FROM THE SPOKANE VALLEY POLICE DEPT: On Tuesday evening, December 11, 2012, at 11:30 p.m., Spokane Valley Sheriff's Deputy C. Hilton notified dispatch of a vehicle driving recklessly near Park and Trent in Spokane Valley. Sheriff's Deputy C. Sciortino was in the area of Trent and Havana when he observed the vehicle, a 2001 Pontiac Bonneville, traveling westbound on Trent prior to turning southbound on Havana.

When Deputy Sciortino attempted to stop the vehicle, the driver continued to drive recklessly disregarding the southbound stop light at Havana and Mission. The vehicle continued south on Havana until it turned east on 8th Avenue. Deputy Sciortino lost sight of the vehicle near the area of 8th and Eastern.

A short time later a resident near the area of 200 N. Bessie called 911 and said there was a vehicle on fire in his driveway. Deputy Sciortino responded to the scene and determined it was the same vehicle that was driving recklessly. The vehicle was unoccupied at the time of the fire.

The Spokane Valley Fire Department responded to the scene and extinguished the flames, which had fully engulfed the vehicle. An arson investigator with the Spokane Valley Fire Department determined the fire started somewhere in the engine compartment and was not arson. It is unknown at this time who was driving the vehicle or if the vehicle was stolen.
