Driver bails from disabled car during Snohomish Co. chase

Snohomish County sheriff’s deputies are searching for a reckless driver who took off on foot after his car was disabled this morning using a spike strip.

Just before 10 a.m., a deputy tried to stop a 2000 Honda Civic for reckless driving near Highway 99 and Airport Road in South Everett. The driver sped south on Highway 99, reaching speeds of 80 mph, according to the Sheriff’s Office.

Deputies deployed a spike strip near Highway 99 and 188th Street Southwest, deflating the passenger-side tires. The pursuit continued to 196th Street Southwest and Highway 99 in Lynnwood, where the  driver bailed out of the car and took off on foot.

Sheriff’s deputies are currently using a K9 unit to track the driver.
