Woman crashes car onto roof of Bothell apartment complex

A woman in her 60s drove through a fence, off a parking lot and onto the roof of an apartment complex in Bothell this afternoon, according to police.

The woman had gone through a drive-through at a Chase bank near the intersection of 188th Place and Bothell Way near Bothell High School around 2:45 p.m. when she lost control of her car and drove through a fence at the end of the parking lot, Bothell police spokeswoman Denise Langford said.

The front of the woman’s white Hyundai went off an embankment overlooking a small apartment complex, and the front wheels landed on the complex’s roof, Langford said. A witness estimated the gap between the parking lot and the roof of the apartment complex to be “about a 15- to 20-foot drop.”

No one was injured, and the woman’s car has since been towed away, Langford said.

Brandyn Bitzer, an employee at Seattle Home Appliance next door, said he saw the whole thing happen, and it was a simple case of “somebody hitting the gas when they meant to hit the brake.” He said no real damage seemed to have been caused to the complex, and with the car removed, the only remaining sign of the accident was the broken fence.
