King County Deputy vehicle crashes while pursuing stolen car

A King County Deputy spotted a stolen vehicle in White Center. The suspect refused to stop and took off northbound on 15th Ave S.W. At 15th SW and SW Henderson the deputy collided with a citizen vehicle not involved in the chase, according to KCSO Sgt. Cindi West.

Both the deputy and female civilian suffered minor injuries in the crash. The female driver is being transported to Highline Medical Center for further attention, West said.

The suspect continued northbound and either crashed or bailed from the vehicle. A female passenger in the stolen vehicle is in custody and the driver, described as a Hispanic male, fled the scene and is still on the loose.
