ORIGINAL POST: A Belltown street remains closed this morning while Seattle police investigate a crash that sent four people to the hospital, including three with life-threatening injuries.
Police say that just before 6 a.m. an officer tried to pull over a Toyota pickup in Belltown after reportedly seeing people inside the truck throwing an ice scraper, rubber ball and other items out the window.
The truck driver refused to pull over, instead driving down alleys and increasing speed, said police spokesman Mark Jamieson. While speeding down an alley, the truck collided with a minivan driving west in the 300 block of Wall Street. The impact threw the two vehicles into an apartment building, Jamieson said.
Firefighters had to cut three people from the truck, Jamieson said. The three were all transported to Harborview Medical Center with life-threatening injuries. The minivan driver was hospitalized with minor injuries.
Wall Street between Third Avenue and Fourth Avenue will be closed to traffic while detectives conduct their investigation, police said.
