Thursday evening, late, there was a 3-vehicle collision on Aurora by Sky Nursery just north of N 185th St.

Edmonds Police had responded to a call of an erratically driven vehicle on Highway 99 around 220th St SW.

An Edmonds patrol officer located the vehicle and initiated a traffic stop on the vehicle. When the officer approached, the driver sped off.

A brief pursuit was started but terminated by the officer because of the way the driver was operating the vehicle. Shoreline PD was advised that the driver was headed into Shoreline.

After Edmonds PD stopped chasing the vehicle, it continued southbound on Highway 99 all the way into Shoreline where he crashed into two other vehicles in the 18600 block of Aurora.

Edmonds PD say, "We were not chasing the vehicle at that point and had lost sight of it."

After the crash, the driver was able to not only leave the car, but to run. Shoreline officers searched and Edmond sent their K9 team there to try and track the driver, but without success.

Two people from the other vehicles were taken to local hospitals with minor injuries.
