2 Dead in Seattle Accident on South Othello Street
SEATTLE, WA (September 17, 2020) – Last Friday, Sy Ly-Kiu and Su Thin-Sang died in a crash on South Othello Street in Seattle.
Initially, a man reported that his Nissan Pathfinder was stolen on July 23. By Thursday, his vehicle was again stolen from outside his Capitol Hill apartment.
Two Seattle police officers traveled east on South Othello Street before 3:00 a.m. Then, they witnessed an approaching Nissan Pathfinder’s headlights switch off. Eventually, an officer realized that the Pathfinder was included in an officer-safety bulletin. They were also warned that it was a stolen vehicle and Alande Gachette last drove the car.
After recognizing Gachette, an officer made a U-turn to try to stop the car. However, the vehicle turned right onto northbound Martin Luther King Jr. Way South. The officers then chased the vehicle and turned on their emergency lights three seconds before the Pathfinder failed to yield at a red light at South Holly Street. Then, the vehicle crashed into the passenger side of a Toyota Camry turning left onto South Holly Street.
“They watched helplessly as the defendant plowed into a vehicle with the right of way,” reports revealed.
Due to the impact, the Camry’s front passenger seat was pushed behind the driver’s seat
The authorities located Gachette on a mattress in the Pathfinder’s back seat.
Gachette will be arraigned on September 24 on both the murder charges and earlier assault charges.
We extend our deepest sympathies to the family and friends of Sy Ly-Kiu and Su Thin-Sang.
