One man fled the scene of a car crash Sunday morning in SeaTac that sent four others to the hospital, according to the King County Sheriff’s Office. Alcohol was involved in the crash, the agency said on social media.
There were five people in the vehicle — a Chrysler Pacifica with Canadian plates — when it crashed into a pole in the 20700 block of International Boulevard South, about a mile south of Seattle-Tacoma International Airport. The crash occurred at about 9:50 a.m.
Two females, including the driver, and a male were taken to Harborview Medical Center in critical condition, along with one other male in serious condition, according to Sgt. Ryan Abbott.
By Sunday evening their conditions had improved, with the two men and one woman in satisfactory condition, and the second woman in serious condition, according to a hospital spokeswoman. Contacted on Monday, Abbott said he expects another update on the victims’ condition on Tuesday.
Police still don’t know the identity of the man who fled the scene in another vehicle before law-enforcement officials arrived, Abbott said Monday. Although that man is not being sought by police in connection with the accident, “we’d like to know who he is, just to be sure he’s OK,” Abbott said.
