DUI Suspect Arrested for Vehicular Assault in Georgetown Sunday Morning

Seattle Police responded to a collision involving two vehicles with possible injuries near the intersection of 1st Avenue South and South Mead Street where one person was reported to be laying in the street and another with a head injury. 

At approximately 09:00 a.m., officers arrived and spoke with a witness, who was driving behind the suspect vehicle at the time of the collision. The witness reported the suspect vehicle struck a parked vehicle with an occupant in the front passenger area.

The 69-year-old male victim, who was in the front passenger door area of the parked vehicle, sustained a cut to his head and a severe hand injury. Seattle Fire Department personnel provided medical aid to those injured from the collision. The male victim was later transported to Harborview Medical Center for further medical assistance.

The victim’s vehicle was parked on the shoulder of the roadway, but the impact of the collision caused the vehicle to move almost perpendicular to its original location.

When police spoke with the 36-year-old female suspect, police observed signs of impairment and evidence of drug paraphernalia in the female suspect’s vehicle.

The female suspect was arrested for vehicular assault and driving while under the influence. Prior to being booked into King County Jail, officers executed a blood warrant.
