Truck smashes into Phinney Ridge Starbucks, police investigating

Seattle Fire Department’s Technical Rescue Team members secured a Phinney Ridge Starbucks after a truck plowed through the front of the coffee shop early Monday morning, according to a release from the Seattle Fire Department.

Firefighters and police responded to a call at 2:52 a.m., reporting that a pickup truck had driven into the front of the Starbucks located at 316 North 67th Street, Seattle Fire said.

When firefighters arrived, no one was inside the vehicle. The truck had plowed six feet into the business and took down a supporting column, according to the fire department.

Firefighters from the Tech Rescue Team had to shore up the unreinforced brick masonry building before the tow-truck could pull the pickup out, the release said. Occupants are not allowed to reoccupy the building until an engineer can determine whether it’s structurally safe.

Seattle Police officers are investigating the collision.
