Man Hit/Killed By Car While Standing In His Yard

The Spokesman-Review is reporting that a driver with a learner’s permit apparently confused the gas pedal with the brake and struck and killed a man as he stood in his Spokane Valley lawn this afternoon.

The accident happened on 32nd Avenue just west of the intersection with Glenn Road. The victim was identified as Wes Abney, 48.

It's not clear yet if the driver in the incident will be charged.
