Car vs. house at 15th and Orcas

January 13th, 2013 at 8:47 pm | Posted by Wendi Dunlap

A teenaged driver crashed a Honda automobile into the first floor of an occupied house on Friday night at 15th Avenue South and South Orcas Street. Luckily, no one was injured in the collision, including the home’s residents and the three passengers who were in the car along with the driver.

According to Seattle Police, the young driver showed “obvious signs of impairment due to drugs.” A Drug Recognition Officer was called to the scene to assess the situation and the driver was then arrested for suspicion of DUI. He was taken to Harborview for a blood draw, then released pending lab results.

Thanks to neighbor Patrick Payne for these photos of the scene.
