Spokane Police officers responding to an unrelated call ended up arresting a hit-and-run suspect after witnessing a crash near Maple and Mansfield Thursday afternoon.
Officers say the suspect, identified as 38-year-old Allan C. Green, was driving recklessly and hit another car, then fled the area. Officers chased after Green, and he ended up crashing into three other cars at the intersection of Mansfield and Monroe. Green, and occupants of the other cars were taken to the hospital for treatment.
When he's released from the hospital, officers say Green will be booked into Spokane County Jail for Vehicular Assault, Eluding, and Hit-and-Run. Officers suspect Green was under the influence of drugs.
Crash Investigators are on scene, and N. Monroe St. between W. Knox Ave. and W. Montgomery Ave., will be closed for several hours while they complete their investigation.
