• Driver of stolen truck leaves destructive mess in U-District


    SEATTLE - Seattle police are looking for two people they said hit four vehicles and injured two people as they fled from authorities in a stolen pickup.

    It happened shortly before 8 p.m. Monday in Seattle’s University District.

    Police said the stolen truck was first spotted by a parking enforcement officer in North Seattle in the area of 17th Avenue Northeast and Northeast 52nd Street.

    The man and woman in the truck fled the area, but a patrol unit caught up with the pickup at Ravenna and Northeast 55th Street and attempted to pull it over.

    The driver fled again and officers pursued, but the chase was ended due to unsafe speeds.

    The driver then turned onto southbound 25th Avenue Northeast, where the truck hit a vehicle heading northbound as well as three parked cars.

    Two people in the northbound vehicle had non-life-threatening injuries.

    The couple continued on, striking a tree and then bailing out of the car.

    A K-9 unit was called to the scene, but was unable to locate the pair.
