In the past six days there have been two vehicle crashes in Shoreline. In each case, when the police arrived the driver was nowhere to be seen.

Late Saturday night or early Sunday, residents near 15th NE in North City were startled by a very loud noise. The next morning, early, Seattle City Light crews were stabilizing the power lines and replacing the damaged pole on 15th NE in front of St. Marks Parish School.

No power outages were reported.

Sunday, April 30, at 4:46am Shoreline Police responded to an accident on 15th NE in the 18300 block. Upon arrival a 2014 Toyota Camry was unoccupied, blocking the southbound lanes of 15th NE.

It appears that the vehicle was southbound on 15th and lost control, hitting a speed limit sign and light pole.

The vehicle was registered in Edmonds, Edmonds police contacted the registered owner who then reported the vehicle stolen.

Then on Friday, May 5, a vehicle traveling on NW 204 went off the road on 23rd Pl NW and ended up 12 feet down the ravine, in a small creek.

Neighbors went out to assist, but the two people in the car were able to get out, insisting they didn't need help and had to "find the driver".

Police arrived and were able to locate the two from neighbors' descriptions.
