Spokane Police are asking commuters to avoid the area of Freya between Trent and Alki after a situation involving a reckless driver ended with him being hospitalized.

SPD says a man described as reckless driver was in a disabled vehicle with at least one flat tire in the middle of Freya Thursday morning. According to police, he later tried getting into other people's cars, leading them to believe in their initial investigation he was under the influence of either alcohol or drugs.
