Alleged DUI crash leads to firearms arrest in West Seattle

A single-car crash in West Seattle Tuesday night led to the arrest of a 23-year-old man suspected of driving under the influence as well as carrying a concealed weapon without a permit.

After 11:30 p.m. Tuesday, officers responded to reports of a crash in the 4500 block of West Marginal Way SW.

They found a heavily damaged pickup truck that struck and bounced off a utility pole, then came to rest on nearby railroad tracks. Outside the car, they found the driver.

The man told officers that he had fallen asleep at the wheel but had not consumed any alcohol prior to the collision.

Seattle police officers observed signs of impairment and an empty beer can in the truck. Officers performed a field sobriety test, then took the man into custody.

While searching the man to take him into custody, officers found a loaded and concealed full-size handgun in the rear pocket of his pants. The man admitted he did not have a concealed carry permit.

Due to his involvement in the collision, the man was transported and released to Harborview Medical Center for further evaluation.

SPD is requesting charges of driving under the influence and the unlawful possession of a firearm with the city prosecutor’s office.
