SPOKANE, Wash.-- A disabled, World War II era grenade caused an emergency at a gas station on N. Division St. during the morning commute Wednesday.
A attendant at a gas station on Division and Wellesley saw a pickup drive into the Chevron around 8 a.m. They noticed the driver appeared to be losing consciousness and went to check on them. That's when police say the worker noticed what appeared to be a grenade inside the truck and called 9-1-1. Police, fire, and medical crews arrived to secure the area, and also called in the bomb squad.
A specialist suited up, and determined the grenade was inactive -- a World War II relic that can be purchased at an army surplus store.
Medics took the crew to the hospital to be checked out.
