According to Edmonds Police, on Thursday evening, January 21, at 10pm, they pursued a stolen car down Aurora where it crashed at 192nd.
The initial call was for a wrong way vehicle on Caspers St in downtown Edmonds. The caller was able to get the plate, which turned out to be stolen from King County.
That car was located a short time later when someone in the 300 block of Sunset in Edmonds called in a parking complaint. When patrol arrived, the vehicle took off, hitting the push bars of a patrol car as they tried to go around it.
A pursuit ensued down SR 99 into Shoreline. The stolen car crashed in the 19200 block of Aurora Ave and the occupants of the vehicle fled on foot.
Lynnwood K9 tracked them to a crawl space of a nearby house.
The driver was identified as a 15 year old male from SeaTac. He was booked for possession of a stolen car, eluding a police vehicle and hit and run.
Police are still investigating.
