Chase in Everett leads to police pileup

Fortunately no one was severely injured in this pileup this morning, and the suspect was apprehended, but it makes you wonder how many times the words “oh crap” or similar variation on that phrase were uttered.

Here’s the initial coverage out of Everett from speed wire:

EVERETT, Wash. (AP) — Four patrol cars — two Everett city police and two Snohomish County — were involved in crashes after a stolen car chase in Everett.

Sgt. Robert Goetz says four officers were taken to a hospital. One city officer suffered two broken wrists and a broken knee. Another city officer suffered broken fingers. Two deputies were evaluated and released.

The incident began with a deputy chasing a stolen car. The stolen car crashed about 2:20 a.m. Wednesday, and the driver tried to flee on foot.

Officers were responding to the scene when one struck two patrol cars parked at a downtown intersection. A fourth car veered into a planter.

Other officers caught the fleeing driver, 32-year-old Andrew Holden, a suspect in multiple car thefts.
