Spokane Investigative Regional Response Press Release:

Posted 4/3/2014 3:21 PM by MDGREGORY

The Spokane Investigative Regional Response (SIRR) Team continues to investigate yesterday’s hit-and-run collision that occurred near the intersection of Division and Magnesium in north Spokane. Investigators believe the hit-and-run suspect, identified as 36-year-old Tracy L. Marsh, ingested a bag with an unknown substance prior to being taken into custody. The contents of the bag are being tested as a possible controlled substance. The suspect remains hospitalized in critical condition.

Yesterday, April 2, 2014, at approximately 10:30 am, a Spokane Police officer witnessed a hit and run collision near the intersection of Division and Magnesium. The suspect, Tracy Marsh, fled the scene of the collision, initially in his vehicle and then on foot. Marsh ran towards a nearby apartment complex and was taken into custody by the officer with assistance from several citizens.

A witness indicated that Marsh put something in his mouth prior to arrest. Once Marsh was in custody, the officer immediately noticed he appeared to be experiencing a medical emergency. Medics were called to the scene and pulled a bag containing an unidentified substance from Marsh’s throat. The contents of this bag are being tested as a possible controlled substance. Marsh was transported to a local hospital where he remains in critical condition.

SIRR Team investigators are asking anyone who has additional information or may have witnessed this incident to call Crime Check at 456-2233.
