An armed carjacking early Friday morning in the Central District ended when several suspects rammed the stolen car into a utility pole and fled on foot.
Several men – at least one of them armed with a handgun – ordered a woman out of her car at a gas station on the corner of East Cherry Street and 23rd Avenue early Friday, said Detective Drew Fowler of the Seattle Police Department.
The suspects drove off, then struck a utility pole about two miles from the gas station. Witnesses told police the suspects ran away. Police responded to the collision near the intersection of 25th Avenue South and South Plum Street at about 5:20 a.m. No one was injured in the incident.
Police will search the vehicle for fingerprints and will seek video surveillance footage from the gas station, Fowler said.
