A man was killed Friday morning in Spokane Valley after he was hit by an SUV.
The accident happened just before 5:30 a.m. on Mission, just east of Progress.
Spokane Valley Police say the man was likely crossing the street at Mission and st. Charles when he was struck by an SUV. Neighbors living nearby came out and attempted to administer CPR to the victim.
Valley police rushed to the scene. When they pulled up, the driver of the SUV wasn't there, but they said he returned a few minutes later and admitted he was involved in the accident. Deputies administered a field sobriety test to make sure the driver wasn't intoxicated.
“We had two drug recognition experts on scene and they did an evaluation. Initially, they determined no impairment on the driver. The driver is being very cooperative with us at this point in the investigation. So at this point we don't think there's any impairment,” Spokane Valley Police Sergeant Brett Gores said.
As of Friday afternoon the driver is not facing any charges.
The victim's family has been notified but he hasn't been officially identified pending an autopsy by the medical examiner.
