No one was injured, but two people were arrested in a high-speed chase across Snohomish County Monday morning, according to news reports.
The incident began near the Bonneville ball fields east of Lake Stevens when a police officer with Snohomish County reportedly saw a man and woman “engage in suspicious activity.” The sheriff’s deputy reportedly approached the couple and ordered them to stop, but the two jumped into a car and drove toward the officer, according to news reports.
The deputy, who feared the couple was attempting to run him over, called for backup and a chase ensued west along Highway 2, across the Trestle and then north into the city streets of Everett.
Pursing officers used a “pit” maneuver to stop the car at West Marine View Drive and Alverson Boulevard near American Legion Memorial Park, according to news reports.
The man was arrested for” investigation of felony eluding of police, and had two prior outstanding felony warrants” and the woman” faces charges of rendering criminal assistance for throwing evidence and suspected narcotics from the car,” according to news reports.
One car accident occurred during the pursuit involving a sheriff’s deputy cruiser and an SUV, but no injuries were reported.
As an Everett car accident attorney, I’m glad to hear that no one was injured in this high-speed chase. High-speed chases are extremely dangerous to not only the driver, but also officers and other drivers on the roadways. I’m glad police were able to track down this dangerous driver to ensure other people’s safety.
