Edmonds police took a 27-year-old Vancouver, WA man into custody Thursday afternoon, March 8, 2018 on hit-and-run and drug charges following a two-car crash at the intersection of Aurora and NE 205th, literally right on the county line with Snohomish.

According to Edmonds police Sgt. Shane Hawley, a police officer attempted to stop the man, who was driving a silver Hyundai on 9th Ave S in Edmonds, for a traffic violation around 1pm. The driver took off but due to congested streets at that time of day the officer decided not to pursue him, Hawley said.

A few minutes later, the driver was involved in a collision with a Ford Explorer, driven by a 70-year-old Shoreline man. The suspect fled on foot, heading to Aurora Village. An off-duty Seattle police officer who observed the incident followed the suspect into the Aurora Village Costco Tire Center, where he was apprehended by Shoreline police.

The Shoreline man involved in the collision received minor injuries and was evaluated by aid crews at the scene, Hawley said.
