The van hit a small car travelling W/B with 2 occupants, pushing it completely through the intersection, and up the sidewalk into a fence, and crushing the driver’s side halfway into the passenger side of the car.

Both occupants of the car sustained critical injuries. Seattle Fire responded and treated them on scene. Both were transported to an area hospital. The 4 occupants of the suspect van got out and ran westbound across Delridge Way, where responding officers caught them.

The female suspect/ driver was processed and booked into King County Jail for DUI – Vehicular Assault.
