UPDATE: Man Identified After Being Killed By Vehicle In Spokane Valley

UPDATE: The deceased victim has been identified as 30-year-old Matthew Miller. Miller died from a blunt head injury.

PRESS RELEASE FROM THE SPOKANE COUNTY SHERIFF'S OFFICE: On Wednesday, August 7th, 2013, at 8:00 a.m., Spokane Valley Sheriff's Deputies responded to 3rd and Howe to a vehicle vs. pedestrian collision. The pedestrian had been involved in a collision where the Sprague on-ramp and Fancher on-ramp join to enter westbound I-90.

The pedestrian was the victim of the initial collision where a box van made an improper turn across the median from the Sprague on-ramp onto 3rd Ave. The victim driver walked northbound across 3rd to contact the driver of the initial collision. After speaking with the driver, the 30-year-old male victim was walking south across 3rd back to his vehicle talking on his cell phone. 

A vehicle driving westbound on 3rd struck the victim from the initial collision on the front, passenger side of his vehicle. The 33-year-old male driver was not impaired and collision investigators did not cite the driver for any infractions. 

The 30-year-old victim was transported to a local hospital where he was pronounced deceased. The Medical Examiner's Office will identify the victim at a later time. The driver of the box van was cited for the improper turn.
