Man arrested for vehicular assault

On 10/24/10, at approximately 12:30 a.m., officers responded to 2nd Ave S and S. Jackson St to a call of a vehicle collision where a woman was partially pinned under a vehicle.  Upon arrival, officers found one unoccupied vehicle that witnesses identified as having run a red light.

The female victim had been ejected from one vehicle in the collision and ended up with a foot trapped under the tire of the other vehicle.  Officers moved the vehicle away so that Seattle Fire Department personnel could extricate the female victim.  It was soon learned that the driver of the suspect vehicle was the husband of the female victim.

The woman’s husband (suspect) eventually returned to the scene.  The incident allegedly began at a hot dog stand a block away where the woman spoke to another man.  This led to a verbal dispute between the couple.  As he drove recklessly away and ran a red light, the female victim (wife) was somehow ejected from the vehicle.

The female victim was treated on scene by Seattle Fire and transported to an area hospital with possible broken bones in her foot. She also had some teeth knocked during the collision.   The victim’s husband  (suspect) was processed for DUI and then booked into King County Jail for Investigation of Vehicular Assault.  Traffic Collision Investigator’s responded and TCIS and processed the scene.
