Passenger dead and Kent driver behind bars after recklessly driving through White Center and Burien

A reckless night of drinking and driving left one dead and one man on the run only to be found hiding under a parked car. The crash took place in the early morning hours of August 14th when 26-year-old Benjamin Joseph Smith, the passenger, and an unnamed 24-year-old man from Kent, the driver, failed to make the turn at the intersection of S.W. 119th Street and Ambaum Boulevard and ran a late model white BMW into the jersey barrier on the opposite side of the road.

Emergency responders arrived to find that the driver had fled the scene and that Smith had been killed by a severe head injury caused by the impact. In thanks to King County Sheriff’s department’s Guardian One helicopter and K9 units, police were able to locate the driver who had hidden under a car in a nearby driveway.
