Car crash in Burien tops police blotter

One dead and one hospitalized in Burien car crash
Burien Police are investigating whether or not alcohol played a role in an accident in Burien Friday evening that left one dead and sent another to the hospital. The accident occurred just after 5 p.m. when a man driving a late model Volkswagen sedan clipped a car and then fled the scene at high speeds heading south on Ambaum Boulevard. A man driving a black Honda Civic attempted to cross Ambaum at S.W. 154th Street and was broadsided by the Volkswagen. The fleeing driver was killed on impact. The driver of the Honda Civic had to be cut out of their seat after suffering major collision damage by the Volkswagen. The driver was then rushed to Harborview Medical Center in Seattle in critical condition. The two totaled vehicles were moved to the side of Ambaum to allow traffic to flow while police investigated the accident. According to King County Sheriff’s Department PIO, Sergeant D.B. Gates, early investigation points to possible alcohol use by the driver of the Volkswagen. The condition of the Honda driver has yet to be released.
