Suspect in Wednesday night police chase has history with law enforcement

SPOKANE, Wash. - Police provided additional information about a car chase that ended with a crash at Sinto and Napa on Wednesday night.  The suspect, Clifford Sain was booked into jail on four different charges.

The chase began when police attempted to pull over the vehicle that was reported stolen.  The vehicle then led police in a chase.  The car fishtailed, over corrected, hit a truck and knocked over a light pole. One woman fled from the scene, while two other passengers were transported to Sacred Heart Medical Center. Hamilton Street was closed for over an hour after the crash.

Sain was booked into jail for Possession of Stolen Property, Eluding Police, as well as two counts of Vehicular Assault.

Police say Sain was also involved in a similar accident on July 20 when he reportedly crashed into another stolen car while running from police.  That happened at 2nd Avenue and Helena Street and snarled traffic during the morning commute.

A passenger in Wednesday night's collision, Kevin W. Akelund, had a run into with police earlier this month.  He, like Sain, is a suspected car thief.  He suffered a cut to his head on Wednesday night and was treated at the scene by police officers.
