A King County Sheriff’s Deputy is in serious condition after his car hit an embankment and fire hydrant.  The deputy was on his way to assist another deputy who was chasing a suspect on foot in Shoreline near N 185th and Aurora Ave N.

Just before 11:30pm Monday night police received a 911 call from a citizen who said that a patrol car had been in an accident near N Richmond Beach Rd and Dayton Ave N. When deputies arrived, they found the wrecked patrol car with the siren still on. The deputy was out of the car and conscious, but disoriented with a head injury. The deputy was taken to Harborview with serious injuries.

Just prior to the accident , the deputy was on his way to help another deputy who was chasing a wanted subject on foot near the Fred Meyer at N 185th and Aurora Ave N.  That suspect was later caught and arrested.

The King County Sheriff’s Office Major Accident Response and Reconstruction Unit is investigating the accident.

Anyone who witnessed the accident is asked to call the King County Sheriff’s Office at 206-296-3311.
