During the thanksgiving weekend a high-speed pursuit kept Everett residents on edge.
According to the local news, a 26-year-old man from Lake Stevens was spotted driving an allegedly stolen vehicle. A sheriff’s deputy followed the stolen Acura Integra in Snohomish County unsuccessfully since the authority’s car forced an oncoming Washington State Patrol vehicle to veer to the shoulder of the road.
At a certain moment, patrol cars from the City of Snohomish, the Washington State Patrol and the County Police were trying to get the driver to pull over.
Officers report that a deputy vehicle got close and hit the rear corner of the stolen car forcing it to spin out but not even that was enough to make the man stop.
The pursuit continued with the several authorities following up close until the Snohomish police car crashed into the Acura and after spinning many times, the deputy drove into the stolen car once again forcing it to fall into a ditch.
Authorities claimed the suspect tried to run away by foot but was finally captured by the local police.
As an Everett car accident lawyer I hope that no one was injured because of this accident. Hopefully, the authorities will be able to keep similar pursuits from happening in the near future.
Whenever you were the victim of an accident that was caused by a reckless third party, contact a personal injury lawyer as soon as possible.
