Edmonds Police Sgt. Shane Hawley reports that the department received a call of an erratically driven vehicle on Highway 99 around 220th Street SW just before 9 p.m. Thursday, March 29.
A patrol officer located the vehicle and started a traffic stop. When the officer approached, the driver sped off. A brief pursuit was started, but terminated by the officer because of the way the driver was operating the vehicle, Hawley said.
"Apparently, after we stopped chasing the vehicle, it continued southbound on Highway 99 all the way into Shoreline, where he crashed," Hawley said. "We were not chasing the vehicle at that point and had lost sight of it.
"Shoreline was advised of our pursuit and that after the crash, the driver had fled. We sent our K-9 team there to try and track the driver, without success."
