The Spokane Valley Traffic Unit is investigating how a vehicle wound up in the south side of the Spokane River Wednesday morning, leaving one woman dead. Spokane Valley Fire Water Rescue and the Spokane County Sheriff's Office dive team responded to the scene at the 17600 block of E. Montgomery after a caller reported seeing a vehicle in the Spokane River between Flora Rd. and Long Rd. First responders recovered the body of an adult female from the vehicle. Evidence collected indicates that the vehicle turned north from Montgomery on a private drive before driving past a dead-end and over a steep embankment before coming to rest upside down and partially submerged in the river. Investigators are working to determine the events leading up to the deadly incident.
