Two students arrested for racing

Many students would agree that they aren't in any hurry to get to school. But two minors decided to race their cars back to campus Tuesday afternoon, according to a news release from the Spokane Valley Police Department.

A Spokane Valley Sheriff's deputy received a report of two cars racing on Sullivan near the high school. The witness said both cars were speeding and approaching him quickly as he was travelling over the Trent overpass. He said he almost hit the overpass after two cars passed him, and then one cut him off, according to the news release.

The witness said he then saw the two cars drive through a stop sign at Wellesley and continue into the parking lot at East Valley High School.

The deputy caught up with the two teens, and cited them with before releasing them back to school. One of the boys was charged with Reckless Driving. He also still had his instruction permit, so was issued an infraction for No Valid Operator's License.

The other driver was criminally charged with Racing. He also had a restricted liscense and couldn't have any passengers under 20-years-old in his car. Both students had passengers in their cars, so he was also issued an infraction for violating his intermediate license restrictions.
