SEATTLE, WA – Two people were injured after a pair of vehicles and a pedestrian were struck by a fleeing RV in West Seattle on Monday, reports KOMO News.
Authorities said the incident happened around 3 p.m. at the Delridge Way Southwest and Southwest Andover Street intersection.
After running a red light, the RV driver refused to pull over for a traffic stop before losing control of the vehicle. The RV then began to slide down a hill on Delridge Way SW before slamming into a tanker truck and another vehicle. It also collided with a pedestrian and a nearby building.
