SEATTLE — Washington State Patrol's Rick Johnson said troopers are looking for two people who ran away following a deadly vehicle crash on I-5 in Seattle on Sunday morning.
The collision happened around 3:30 a.m. on I-5 near Spokane Street, just south of the West Seattle Bridge in the left lane. The Washington State Patrol (WSP) said two men, ages 34 and 38, died at the scene and a 22-year-old man was taken to Harborview Medical Center, where is in "serious" condition in the ICU. WSP identified the 38-year-old as Terrell Aaron of Seattle. The name of the 34-year-old from Des Moines has not been released.
"There's two cars that were involved in a reportable collision southbound I-5 near Holgate — West Seattle freeway area," Johnson said. "I believe the driver of one of the vehicles got out of the vehicle and then subsequently a jeep came into the scene and struck the vehicles that were already in the collision. Sadly, two individuals in one of the vehicles were pronounced deceased at the scene. The two occupants of the jeep fled on foot.
"Turn yourselves in," Johnson said to those who left after the crash. "Right now it's a felony hit-and-run because of, obviously, the deaths, and it could reach the level of vehicular homicide and vehicular assault for the other injuries. Those are all potential charges."
It's unknown at this time what caused the initial collision. Troopers said they recovered the suspect jeep.
The Washington State Patrol (WSP) is investigating the collision and asks anyone who saw the crash or has information to contact WSP.
