Two-vehicle collision at 39th and Fremont

On 12-27-09 at 1133 a.m.,  a silver, 2004,  SUV, driven by a 20-yoa male was traveling southbound on Fremont Ave N.  At the same time a red, 1988, Chev, Nova, (which was an unreported stolen vehicle), driven by an unknown age Hispanic male was traveling westbound on N. 39th St. 

The two vehicles collided in the intersection.  The Land Cruiser veered to the right and struck a steel light pole on the southwest corner.  The Chev, Nova slide sideways and struck the curb coming to a stop near the Land Cruiser. 

A 42-yoa female and a 44-yoa male pedestrian were walking on the sidewalk on the southwest corner.  Both were struck with debris from the two vehicles colliding.  However, the female pedestrian apparently was struck in the back of the head by the spare tire, which was ejected from the trunk of the Chev, Nova during the collision. 

The Hispanic male driver of the Nova exited the vehicle bleeding profusely from the head and face and fled on foot immediately after the collision.  He is still at large.  The passenger of the Nova also had head and facial injuries remained at the scene. 

The Seattle Fire Department responded to the scene and transported all five individuals to Harborview Medical Center.   

The 42-yoa female pedestrian’s medical condition was serious but stable.  The passenger of the Nova had a broken jaw and lacerations to the forehead.  The occupants of the Land Cruiser and the male pedestrian did not have any significant injuries.
