Spokane Police would like to continue to remind drivers to be watchful for pedestrians, motorcycles, and bicyclists near the roadway.  With the long summer and great weather many people have become accustomed to driving at increased speeds on our dry, clean, roads.  Please help prevent crashes by being cautions of your speeds, and watching your surroundings.

Spokane Police ask any witnesses to the crash, who have not already been contacted, to call Crime Check at (509)456-2233.
