As reported on the Seattle Police Department Blotter on March 30, a 47-year-old woman was seriously injured early Saturday morning after her vehicle was broadsided by a man who was involved in a series of hit-and-run accidents.
Police arrested a 44-year-year old male suspect after he was involved in at least three separate hit-and-run accidents. Police believe the man was under the influence of alcohol and/or drugs at the time of the accident and they reported they confiscated crack cocaine from the suspect.
The injured woman was taken to Harborview Medical Center for treatment .
Drivers who are under the influence of alcohol or drugs cause far too many injury accidents and this is a state-wide problem. Drivers who are driving under the influence of drugs may outnumber those who are driving while under the influence of alcohol.
The driver faces serious charges of Vehicular Assault for driving under the influence of alcohol or drug and causing another person substantial bodily harm. Vehicular Assault is a Class B felony which can result in a prison sentence. The man also faces a myriad of other charges which may increase his sentence.
