Detectives from the Traffic Collision Investigation Squad (TCIS) are conducting an investigation after a car struck a residence, killing a woman inside.
At approximately 11:00 am, officers and Seattle Fire responded to the 10700 block of 38th Avenue NE for reports of a car into a house. First responders found a 2004 Mercedes sedan inside the residence, after it went through a wall and into a bedroom. The collision struck a 72-year-old female inside and she died as a result of her injuries. Officers contacted the 88-year-old female driver. As is routine, a drug-recognition expert officer responded and evaluated her for any signs of impairment. She did not show any signs of impairment. TCIS detectives responded and began their investigation.
This remains an active and on-going investigation.
