KENT, WA – Three people were injured Tuesday evening when a 19-year-old driver, attempting to flee from a State Trooper, crashed into cars waiting at a stoplight at SR 167 and SR 516.
A Washington State Patrol trooper attempted to pull over the 19-year-old driving a BMW for erratic driving, but the suspect instead continued speeding south down SR 516, according to KOMO News.
When the driver exited SR 516 southbound at S. 277th Street he crashed into a line of cars that were stopped at a light. He fled on foot but was soon after arrested by a Sheriff’s deputy.
A 58-year-old woman and a 28-year-old woman were injured in this crash and taken to a local hospital in unknown conditions. The 28-year-old was driving with three small children in the car, who luckily escaped injury.
The BMW driver was transported to Harborview Medical Center and will be charged with felony eluding, vehicular assault and hit-and-run when he recovers, according to KOMO.
