A wrongful death caused by a drunk driver in Spokane claimed the lives of two victims. The first victim died at the scene of the car accident when a drunk driver drove over the curb colliding with a pedestrian. The wrongful death victim died due to his chest being crushed. Two other victims were hospitalized following the incident. Unfortunately, one of those two has also succumbed to their injuries and recently died in the hospital. These two individuals were said to be homeless and often lived on the street where the car accident took place. Witnesses say the drunk driver fled the scene of the accident and went into a nearby store. An employee saw the driver enter the store walk into the restroom. After using the restroom, the driver reportedly left the store without reporting the accident to officials. Police later found out this driver had a previous history of driving offenses and drug use. The driver was arrested and remains in jail with a $50,000 dollar bond. If the bond is met, the court will require her to use a vehicle interlock device. She will also be required to stay in Spokane County.
