Suspected DUI driver crashes car on concrete median
It happened at Washington and Indiana at around 2 a.m. on Friday. The driver ended up on the center median just before a left hand turn from Indiana to Washington.
Police say this man was driving westbound on Indiana, in the center lane, and didn't see the concrete median ahead. According to officers, because of tire marks on the ground, it looks like he tried to slow down but it wasn't soon enough, and he ended up driving over the curb.That driver has not been identified, but was arrested and booked into the Spokane County Jail for suspicion of DUI.
