On Friday morning, October 7, 2011, a man in his 20’s was arrested for being involved in a wrong-way crash and thereafter allegedly trying to flee by attempting to overtake a taxi cab.
The event allegedly occurred in Seattle around 2 a.m. in the morning; it is alleged that the man’s car collided with another car at Seventh Street and Union. The suspect and two passengers jumped out of their car and got into a nearby taxi cab. Apparently witnesses stopped the cab, telling the cabbie that the passengers were fleeing from a hit-and-run accident. The suspect driver thereafter grabbed the cab driver from behind and allegedly tried to grab the keys from the ignition. Eventually, the suspect and two other individuals ran from the scene, but the police found the three a few blocks away and the suspect driver was arrested for investigation of assault and investigation of robbery, and may ultimately be additionally charged with assault, hit and run, driving on a suspended license and DUI.
