Traffic Investigators Ask for Your Help Locating Hit & Run Vehicle

Spokane Valley Traffic Unit Investigators are attempting to locate a vehicle involved in a hit and run injury collision, involving a pedestrian, early yesterday morning.  The driver didn’t even stop to check on the pedestrian before fleeing the scene.   


On October 29, 2018, at approximately 7:00 a.m., Spokane Valley Sheriff’s Deputies responded to a call of an injury collision at the intersection of Sprague and Corbin Ln., in Spokane Valley. 

Witnesses stated the adult female pedestrian was crossing Sprague in the crosswalk when the eastbound vehicle struck her.  At first the victim’s injuries appeared to be serious but fortunately, were later determined to be less severe.

Traffic Unit Investigators located pieces of plastic from a mirror on the roadway.  Through their investigation, they learned the mirror is from a 1988-1991 Honda Civic.

Investigators ask anyone who has information regarding this hit and run collision or knows of a dark colored Honda, missing a driver’s side mirror and/or possible fresh damage to the driver’s side front or side of the vehicle, to call Corporal Jeff Welton at 509-477-3237, reference #10151700. 

They are also asking anyone who has surveillance cameras with possible video footage of the area/intersection yesterday morning to review the footage for any video of the suspect vehicle.

With darkness during our morning and evening commutes, we would like to remind drivers, pedestrians and bicyclists to be vigilant for one another and to use caution while traveling on our roadways and in our community.  Pedestrians and bicyclists should wear light colored clothing or use reflective vests, blinking lights, or carry flashlights, to help them be easily seem by drivers.
