Reckless Drivers Collide, Careening into Several Parked Cars and a Power Pole


Spokane Valley Sheriff’s Deputies and Traffic Collision Investigators are at the scene of a multivehicle crash where two drivers, who appeared to be racing, lost control and collided before slamming into several parked cars and a power pole.  One driver is reported to have minor injuries.  The second driver sustained serious, but what appears to be non-life-threatening injuries.  

Expect traffic delays for several hours on southbound Argonne between Valleyway and Main as the investigation continues, and repairs are completed.   

On June 10, 2020, at approximately 2:45 p.m., Spokane Valley Sheriff’s Deputies responded to the report of a multivehicle crash on S. Argonne near Main Avenue. 

Arriving Deputies learned, two vehicles appeared to be racing at a high rate of speed from Broadway.  The drivers lost control, collided, and left the roadway, sticking at least three parked cars and severing a power pole before coming to rest back on Argonne. 

Spokane Valley Fire personnel responded to provide medical aid and remove the injured drivers from the destroyed vehicles.

Traffic Collision Investigators were called to the scene to conduct the investigation. 

SIRT Team volunteers are assisting with diverting traffic from Argonne, around the crash scene and back onto Argonne. 

Please avoid the area for the next several hours as this incident is investigated, and the power pole is replaced.       

Initial information indicates speed and reckless driving are factors, but impairment is not suspected. 

The adult male drivers involved in this senseless crash could face charges to include reckless driving and vehicular assault at the conclusion of the investigation.
