Brief police chase ends in crash in Spokane intersection

Posted: Updated:
SPOKANE, Wash. -

Spokane Police say they will be charging a woman with several felonies after a brief chase Wednesday afternoon.

It all started around 3:40 p.m. when a Patrol Anti-Crime Team (PACT) Officer saw a car speeding through residential streets in the area of Mallon and Crestline. The speeding vehicle had no plates and was painted primer grey. The officer estimated the car was going 50 mph in a 25 mph zone. The officer got behind the car, it slowed down and a man jumped out of the passenger side and ran.

The car sped up again and the officer followed, but the chase was ended due to safety concerns.

A short time later a crash was reported at the intersection of Helena and Trent. The PACT officer recognized the vehicle as the one he'd been chasing earlier, and arrived at the intersection to find a woman running from the scene. He was able to take her into custody just west of the intersection. She had sustained a large cut to her leg trying to scale a fence that was topped with razor wire.

Two people hit by the speeding car were taken to an area hospital with serious injuries, but those injuries were not described as life threatening.

The female suspect was also taken to the hospital after she had a medical issue on scene. Once she leaves the hospital, police say she'll be charged with Attempting to Elude Police, Felony Hit and Run and Vehicular Assault. Police say impairment does appear to be a factor in the crash.

The man who ran from the car is still on the run and police are looking into what charges he may face as a result of the crash.
