SEATTLE, WA – Authorities say at least two people were injured after an RV crashed into two vehicles and a pedestrian in West Seattle during a police chase on Monday afternoon.
According to KOMO News, the incident happened at the intersection of Delridge Way Southwest and Southwest Andover Street at around 3 p.m.
The driver of the RV ran a red light and sped away when police attempted a traffic stop, before losing control of the vehicle and sliding down a hill on Delridge Way SW. The RV then struck a tanker truck, another vehicle, and a pedestrian before colliding with a building.
A 79-year-old man suffered serious injuries and was transported to Harborview Medical Center for treatment. A 44-year-old woman was also injured but only required treatment at the scene.
Police say the driver abandoned the vehicle and fled the scene on foot, but was later apprehended.
