Police arrest driver for vehicular assault, hit and run after crash

Posted: Updated:
SPOKANE, Wash. -

Spokane Police officers witnessed a black Yukon driving recklessly in the area of Napa and Mission Sunday afternoon around 4 p.m. They tried to catch up to the Yukon to pull him over, but the driver, identified as 31-year-old Ricky E. Grubb, took off and sped away.

Officers lost sight of the Yukon at Sinto and Magnolia. Due to the reckless and dangerous manner of Grubb's driving, the officers did not chase after him. Grubb drove down an alley and hit a pickup truck on Napa. The crash caused the pickup to hit another car parked in the parking lot of Cassano's Market. The two people in the pickup truck suffered serious injuries, but they are not life-threatening. 

Police say Grubb continued to drive north through the parking lot and hit an antique truck before coming to rest in the eastbound lanes of Mission Ave. Grubb's passenger was injured in that collision. Officers saw the aftermath of the crash and were able to take Grubb into custody.

All those injured were transported to a local hospital, but conditions have not been released.

Grubb was arrested and booked into jail for vehicular assault and hit and run.

    SPOKANE, Wash. - It's been an incredibly difficult couple of months for Kaley Hilderbrand and her family. "We're in the middle of moving from an apartment to a house," Hilderbrand said.  It's not something the mom of a brand new baby girl though she would be doing. Back in April, the soon-to-be-married mother of three was living in a north Spokane apartment complex when she received an angry letter about doing laundry at night.
