Accident update; no charges yet

February 6th, 2009 · 5 Comments

We have had a number of readers ask what happened to the driver following the bad accident on 15th Ave West last Friday. We checked with Seattle Police Department spokesperson Mark Jamieson and he says so far no charges have been filed against the driver who caused the accident.    

The Initial accident report from SPD said the suspect was driving his Toyota Highlander at a very high rate of speed, cutting in and out of traffic and passing other vehicles using the center turn lane before colliding head on with another vehicle and seriousely injuring the driver and passenger. 

The adult male suspect was taken to Harborview with non-life-threatening injuries, where officers evaluated him for suspicion of driving under the influence of alcohol and/or drugs. 

Jamieson says the investigation is ongoing and it can take quite awhile to sort through the evidence after such a serious accident.  He stressed that this is not unusual and if there are any charges they will happen after the investigation is complete and sent to the prosecutor’s office.

We will keep checking and let you know if charges are filed.
