Tukwila police officer injured in truck-car collision

A stolen truck collided with a police car on the West Seattle Bridge Wednesday evening, injuring a Tukwila police officer and snarling westbound traffic for hours. 

The collision occurred after officers from the Tukwila Police Department pursued a stolen car, which then collided with a police car.

Tukwila offers responded to the Westfield Southcenter Mall after reports of a stolen vehicle, and when they located the vehicle, it failed to stop and headed northbound on Interstate 5, police said. The fleeing vehicle continued onto the West Seattle Bridge, lost control and crashed on the bridge. When police cars arrived, the truck rammed one of the police cars, police said. The driver and two passenger fled on foot but were apprehended by police.

The Tukwila police officer involved in the collision was taken to Harborview Medical Center and treated for minor injuries.
