SPOKANE, Wash. — A woman is suspected of causing a white truck to crash into a Catholic Charities apartment building on 2nd Ave. in downtown Spokane before fleeing the scene.
According to Spokane Police Cpl. Teresa Fuller, 39-year-old Erin Edwards crashed her 1992 Buick Century into the pickup, sending it into the Marilee apartment building. The woman then fled on foot.
Edwards failed to stop for a stop sign and attempted to cross three lanes of traffic at the time of the crash, Fuller said.
Edwards stands at 5-foot 6-inches tall, according to Fuller. She was wearing a purple tye-dye tank top and ripped black leggings and may still be in the downtown area, Fuller said. Anyone who sees her is asked to call the Spokane Police Department.
Fuller said Edwards was stopped earlier for not having working brake lights and missing her front license plate. Edwards was booked into the Spokane Co. Jail for driving with a suspended license.
She was released and caused the hit-and-run approximately two hours later at about 4:30 p.m.
