Suspect in hit & run arrested

Spokane police arrested a 28 year old man early Saturday morning in connection to a serious hit and run that sent a person to the hospital Thursday morning.

Investigators were working off of still photos taken from surveillance video from the area of Second Avenue and Wall where the crash occurred.

Detectives say early Saturday morning they located a 1999 Ford Taurus with extensive front end damage. Officials say the officers were able to see blood inside the vehicle.

The vehicle was towed away as evidence and officers arrested the registered owner, Gabriel Hein. He was booked him into the Spokane County Jail for Felony Hit and Run and Vehicular Assault. He’s expected to make his first court appearance on Monday.

Police did not provide an update on the condition of the victim Saturday but then man was rushed to the hospital Thursday morning with critical injuries.
