KING COUNTY – Troopers say a driver who crashed into another car and then kept driving was likely under the influence.

The crash happened early Friday morning on I-405 near 70th Street.

Investigators say the suspect did not stop after hitting the car and eventually crashed into a barrier near 124th Street.

Troopers booked the driver into King County Jail on vehicular assault and hit-and-run charges.

The victims were taken to the hospital for treatment. Their conditions are unknown.
