SUV Crashes into Redmond Convenience Store
REDMOND, WA (January 15, 2019) – Early Tuesday morning, a SUV slammed into a convenience store near Redmond, injuring both passengers in the vehicle.
King County Sheriff’s Department stated the accident occurred about 2:00 AM at a Shell gas station in the 24800 block of Redmond-Fall City Road.
Officials reported that a Porsche Cayenne was driving eastbound on Redmond-Fall City Road at a high speed when it struck a light pole and several gas barriers before slamming into the gas station. The store owner told deputies he believes the SUV was traveling about 80 MPH and attempting to elude a deputy when it lost control.
Upon the arrival of first responders, the driver had fled the scene on foot leaving behind a female and male passenger. The female passenger sustained minor injuries and was taken to Overlake Hospital for further medical evaluation.
The male driver kept running into the street and it was determined he was intoxicated; he was arrested on hit-and-run charges.
Firefighters had to clear up part of the building. Deputies have not been able to identify the driver.
