March 5th, 2011 by master

Just after 1am this morning (3/5), an unmarked UWPD patrol car with two officers inside was responding to back up Seattle Police officers involved in a disturbance near 7th Avenue NE and I-5. The UWPD patrol car ended up colliding with another vehicle in the intersection of University Way and NE 45th Street.

After the collision, the UWPD patrol car veered southwest, striking two adult male pedestrians who were standing at the corner of the intersection. The patrol car came to rest after hitting the American Apparel store. Both pedestrians were taken to Harborview for non-life threatening injuries. No one else was seriously hurt.
