Driver arrested after fatal West Seattle crash

A driver involved in a fatal car crash in West Seattle on Saturday night appeared to be under the influence of alcohol, Seattle police said.

At about 9:11 p.m., a Chevy pickup truck southbound on Delridge Way Southwest struck a Honda CRV that was making a left turn onto the northbound lane from Southwest Kenyon Street, police said. The impact caused the Chevy truck to roll over and ejected a man riding in the pickup’s bed. Medics pronounced him dead at the scene.

Police said the driver of the Chevy truck showed signs of alcohol consumption and was arrested and processed for driving under the influence. He was transported to Harborview Medical Center with non-life-threatening injuries, police said.

A front-seat passenger in the truck was treated at the scene and released, police said.

Police said they didn’t detect any signs of impairment in the driver of the Honda, who was transported to Harborview with minor injuries.

Detectives responded to the scene. Delridge Way Southwest was closed about one block in each direction for more than four hours.
