Federal Way cop car plows into house; officer didn’t shift to ‘park’

The Associated Press

FEDERAL WAY — A police spokeswoman in Federal Way said an unoccupied police vehicle rolled down a hill and crashed into a home Monday evening after the officer neglected to put it in park.

Spokeswoman Cathy Schrock said an officer responding to a car crash found a wrecked car with a female driver stuck inside. He got out to help her but forgot to put his own vehicle in park, according to a KOMO-TV report.

The officer was unable to stop his vehicle, and it hit a home about 300 feet down the hill.

While the homeowners were not hurt, both car and house suffered significant damage.

Schrock said the officer helped free the woman from the wrecked car and she was taken to a hospital. She wasn’t seriously hurt.
