Spokane police released footage of a July 1 crash involving a truck slamming into another vehicle at 3rd and Freya. Police aren't looking for the driver that fled the scene; they're looking for the Good Samaritan that rushed to help.
When the driver of a truck ran a red light at 3rd and Freya his vehicle slammed into a car heading eastbound on 3rd, the force of the crash sending both vehicles spinning onto the I-90 overpass.
Then out of nowhere, a Good Samaritan running southbound on Freya rushed to the aid of the crash victims.
Not only do police want to thank this mystery Good Samaritan, they also want to talk to them.
"We know that he's out there somewhere and maybe you know often times people will just think it's not important to call police or to come forward and so this is sort of our plea to the community that if it was you, we really need to talk to you, that's kind of our last link to this case, we need to talk to that person," Spokane police spokesperson Jennifer DeRuwe said.
The Good Samaritan is the only person to have made contact with that driver, so police need to talk to that person to pursue felony charges against the driver that caused the crash.
While police don't have anyone in custody, thanks to photo red cameras like the one at 3rd and Freya, and the fact that the driver left their car behind, police say they have leads they're following up on.
