Seattle police have arrested the driver of a pickup truck after a wild chase. The man reportedly stopped his machine, but then decided not to give up. Then he began to run down the slope in front of the officers in an intense race. After a side collision with another vehicle, the rear van hit a 79-year-old man who was later hospitalized in serious condition, according to the Seattle Times.

After crossing the intersection with Delridge Way in Southwest, a mobile home rammed a tanker truck and then a 79-year-old pedestrian, who was hospitalized in serious condition, according to SPD.
As the Seattle Times reports, a man was driving a pickup truck and didn’t stop properly at a traffic light. Monday the 15th. In February, at about 2:30 p.m., Seattle police pursued a vehicle near Delridge Way and Southwest Andover Street. But the driver clearly had other ideas.
Seattle police then chased the driver down a hill while the van fled behind. To avoid arrest, the 47-year-old driver of the van swerved to the rear after stopping. Instead of stopping, the man drove the RV down a steep hill and accelerated westward.

After hitting the wall, the driver of the van fled from Seattle police on foot. The pursuit of the van ended abruptly with the arrest of the driver. After his arrest, police took the man into custody, the Seattle Times reported.
But to expose oneself and others to such a risk, someone must feel incredibly compelled to run from the law. What is this story about? What did the driver of the van do?
Man arrested on multiple charges.
I doubt anyone following this story will be shocked to hear that the driver of the van was arrested on multiple charges. The charges are reckless endangerment and assault. Seattle police also found a warrant for his arrest. The warrant was for a stolen car, but police suspected he also had drugs.
The man was detained at the King County Jail on suspicion of assault, felony escape, unlawful possession of drugs and a warrant, according to New York State Police.
And they were right. The officers were able to locate the suspected drugs. Police then took him to the King County Jail.
