Driver loses control and hits rockery on 107th S.W.

Just after 8pm the male driver of a late model Audi, according to the witness who called it in, was headed westbound on 107th S.W. approaching California Ave. S.W. in Arbor Heights, just off Marine View Drive. "He was doing highway speed, and he nearly hit us," the witness said. The driver was attempting to turn right on to California Ave. S.W. but apparently lost control of the vehicle and impacted a rockery wall. The airbag deployed and the driver had no apparent injuries as he spoke to the police following the accident.

"We were just walking the dogs... and he came speeding down the road...then all of a sudden... I watched him and I thought he's not going to make the corner and he drove over here and I thought he hit a garage but it was so dark I couldn't see but he hit the wall," the witness said referring to the rockery.

"I tried to phone it in but the dog ran off and pulled the phone out of my hand so I ran across the street and knocked on the door, kind of frantically, so they could call 911 because we didn't know what shape he was in."

The owner of the house did not hear it since he and his wife were inside watching the aftermath of the Seahawks Superbowl victory and had heard other loud sounds outside. "I saw the flashing lights and came outside to see what had happened."
