Vehicle/pedestrian collision on Columbian Way

On December 12th at approximately 7:08 pm, a 1998 black Chevy Corvette was travelling eastbound in the 1700 Block of South Columbian Way when the Corvette veered off the street and onto the driveway/front yard of a house and struck two pedestrians.  The two people were standing at the back of their parked car unloading luggage from the trunk.  The Corvette struck the two individuals with the front of the car, pinning the two people between the two cars momentarily before bouncing off and coming to a rest facing westbound.  The pedestrians each suffered serious injuries to their legs and were transported to the hospital for treatment.  The driver of the Corvette was evaulated at the scene for possible signs of impairment/intoxication.  The 50-year old male driver of the Corvette was arrested and later booked into the King County Jail for Investigation of Vehicular Assault.  The Traffic Collision Investigation Squad (TCIS) responded to the scene and conducted the investigation.
