A 22-year-old Edmonds man was charged with unattended hit-and-run and DUI after the car he was driving crashed into this recreational vehicle on Bowdoin Way just west of 86th Avenue West the morning of March 11, Edmonds police said.

Although the driver exited the vehicle after the crash and left on foot, Edmonds police were able to locate him — as one of the vehicle’s registered drivers — at his home. He was arrested and booked into Snohomish County Jail, police spokesperson Commander Josh McClure said.

  1. Just the other day another black SUV doesn’t look like the same one lost control at Puget drive and Olympic drive smashing into a telephone pole and then striking it again before fleeing the seen with air bags deployed. It is a free for all out there right now watch your six.

  2. There has long been worry for residents along Bowdoin Way due to the high speed driving going on up and down the hill between Yost Park and the round about at Five Corners. The residents of this dwelling were lucky to have an RV block this vehicle from entering a bedroom and killing the sleeping resident. As it is, the damage to the RV, the house, and possibly the foundation, etc. will be arduous and costly. Thank goodness the resident’s are okay or this would have been an extremely tragic story.
    Aside from the DUI aspect and irresponsible choices and driving displayed in this particular event, there must be a better solution than to allow the speeding along this road to continue. I often see adults with toddlers or children in strollers walking along this very same place on Bowdoin Way and I cringe inside. This is not a safe place to walk in broad daylight on a sidewalk and this recent event illustrates that very plainly. It would be unforgivable to wait until someone dies to address this problem.

  3. Citizens need to organize a traffic safety March of Signs to demand change. Parent groups could be the lead effort.

  4. One crash = an epidemic of vehicular assault? Sounds like they arrested the one responsible. How would have signs prevented this occurrence?
