Fatality Collision in North Seattle

On April 4th at approximately 4:41 a.m. officers responded to a one-vehicle collision near NW 54th Street and NW Market Street.  Preliminary investigation indicates that a red 1986 Pontiac Firebird with four occupants was traveling westbound on NW Market Street at a high rate of speed.  Near the intersection with NW 54th Street, the Firebird left the roadway, crossed the sidewalk and collided with a steel pole (part of a restaurant sign).  SFD medics were called to the scene.  

The driver of the car along with two of the other vehicle occupants, all adult males in their 20’s, died as a result of the collision.  A female in her mid-teens, who was sitting in the back seat behind the driver, was transported to Harborview Medical Center by SFD medics with life-threatening injuries.

It is unknown at this time if alcohol was a factor in the collision.  Traffic Collision Investigation Squad detectives responded to the scene and continue to actively investigate.
