Police Investigate a Hit-And-Run Crash on 1st Avenue S in Normandy Park
Normandy Park, WA (November 13, 2021) – Friday night, police investigate a rear-end hit-and-run crash near 16000 1st Avenue S.
The collision happened at around 10:15 p.m. on November 12.
Normandy Police Department said the initial collision occurred when one vehicle rear-ended another vehicle and then attempted to drive away near 16000 1st Avenue S.
Reportedly, the vehicle that had been struck chased the suspect vehicle to try to get a license plate number but then a passenger in the vehicle that caused the crash fired rounds at the vehicle following them but didn’t hit anyone.
At that point, the vehicle that was struck stopped following.
Then the vehicle that caused the initial crash lost control and crashed in front of the Normandy Park Ale House in the 19800 block of 1st Avenue S.
As a result, two passengers were trapped in the suspect’s car following the second crash.
Moreover, the driver tried to flee but was immediately stopped by officers and taken into custody.
