Spokane driver swallows false teeth and crashes


Driver swallows false teeth and crashes

The driver of a minivan caused a chain-reaction crash near Fairview and Monroe Thursday afternoon. 

Spokane Police say the driver was heading south on Monroe when he swallowed his false teeth, lost control of the minivan and ran into two cars parked in front of The Hub Tavern.  One of them was forced into the bar, causing major structural damage. The driver of the minivan then kicked out his window because he couldn't open his door after the crash. 

The driver of the minivan suffered minor injuries and was taken to the hospital to have his stomach pumped to get the teeth out. Spokane Police also say the driver does not have a driver's license.
