Traffic Collision Investigators responded to a DUI collision in South Seattle. On 4/6/14, just shortly after 2:00 a.m., a grey Toyota Prius was travelling northbound on MLK Jr Wy S approaching S Othello St. At the same time, a green Ford Focus was travelling southbound on MLK Jr Wy S approaching S Othello St.
The Ford Focus initiated a left eastbound turn in front of the Toyota Prius and a collision resulted. Officers noted signs of alcohol impairment by the adult female driver of the Ford Focus; she was subsequently placed under arrest for DUI.
Settle Fire Dept responded and treated the driver and passenger of the Toyota Prius. They both sustained non-life threatening injuries. Both were transported to Harborview Medical Center via AMR.
Neither the driver nor passenger of the Ford Focus sustained injuries.
As is routine, a Drug Recognition Expert officer responded and took over the arrest/investigation of the driver of the Ford Focus; she was processed for DUI and released pending further investigation.
