Police chase ends in crash outside Edmonds hospital

The driver of a stolen SUV was injured early this morning when he crashed in the parking lot of an Edmonds hospital during a police chase.

A Lynnwood police officer tried to stop the Lexus just after midnight near 196th Street Southwest and Highway 99 in Lynnwood, but the driver sped off. The officer pursued the SUV, which headed south on 99 before turning into the driveway of Swedish Hospital’s Edmonds campus. The SUV crashed into a tree.

The driver was taken to Seattle’s Harborview Medical Center with unknown injuries, according to Lynnwood police.

Police say the Lexus was reported stolen out of Seattle.
