A man allegedly driving drunk and being chased by police crashed his small pickup truck into an Edmonds home early Tuesday morning. The suspect fled the truck after the crash but police found him hiding nearby and arrested him.
The incident took place in the 10700 block of 244th Street Southwest at the King-Snohomish County line about 3:30 a.m. According to a King County Sheriff’s investigator at the scene, the suspect — who lives in the area — failed to negotiate a curve in the road and careened down a driveway where he took out some mailboxes and crashed into the home at the end of road.
A retired couple sleeping inside the home were uninjured and in fact weren’t aware of the crash until police told them, the sheriff’s investigator said.
