Police Pursuit in Federal Way Ends in Fatal Crash
FEDERAL WAY, WA (December 2, 2019) — A woman in her 30’s died in a police chase crash on 1st Avenue South and South 348th Street in Federal Way.
The incident happened when officers tried pulling the woman over around 10 a.m. for reckless driving; however, the unidentified driver sped off, leading police on a chase with speeds over 70 miles per hour in a 35-mph zone.
Unfortunately, the vehicle plowed into a tree along the center median on 1st Avenue South.
Because the driver had not been strapped in a seatbelt, she suffered fatal injuries and died at the scene. A 9-year-old boy in the car suffered minor injuries, prompting paramedics to transport him to a local hospital for immediate assistance.
Following the crash, the Washington State Patrol closed the area for investigations and clean up. At this time, it’s unclear what drove the crash or the chase.
