Suspected DUI crash in W. Seattle leaves 2 critically injured
SEATTLE — A woman was arrested early Sunday for DUI vehicular assault after a van she was driving went through a stop sign in West Seattle and broadsided a car traveling through the intersection, critically injuring two people, police said.
The accident occurred at about 2 a.m.
The van was northbound on 17th Avenue SW when it drove through a stop sign at SW Cambridge Street without stopping, police said, and plowed into the side of a small car with two people in it, police said.
The impact drove the car up the sidewalk, into a fence and crushed the driver’s side halfway into the passenger side, police said. Both occupants of the car received critical injuries, police added.
The four occupants of the van got out and ran westbound across Delridge Way, police said, where responding officers caught them.
The woman driver was booked into King County Jail on a charge of DUI vehicular assault.
