Hit-and-run driver smashes into Northgate TJ Maxx

Posted by Mike on May 9th, 2013

Seattle Police say a 25-year-old driver smashed his old car into the TJ Maxx store at Northgate on Thursday afternoon, then fled the scene.

The incident occurred about 1 p.m. on May 8th, police said, in the 11000 block of Roosevelt Way Northeast.

Preliminary investigation indicates that the 25-year-old male suspect was driving his 1973 Plymouth Scamp westbound on NE 112th Street (the only other occupant of the car was an adult female riding in the front passenger-side seat). As the suspect turned south onto southbound Roosevelt Way NE he lost control of his vehicle and crashed into the rear of the TJ Maxx building. Both the suspect and his passenger then left the scene on foot and were gone upon the officers’ arrival.

While officers were on scene investigating the suspect and his girlfriend returned to the scene. Officers arrested the suspect and transported him to the North Precinct where he was investigated and processed for suspicion of driving under the influence of alcohol and/or drugs (DUI).

Damage to the building was slight. Damage to the car was substantial, police said. There were no reported injuries.

    Actually the suspect has at least one criminal traffic charge in his court history. Washington state courts are most forgiving. At least the TJ Maxx building took his vehicle away for good.
