SPDBlotter has information this morning about the early-morning pileup in Highland Park (photo above was tweeted by KING 5): Police say a woman driving an SUV rammed a parked car at 9th/Henderson Place (map), with so much force that “a chain reaction occurred” and left a total of 6 parked cars damaged. The SUV’s driver was taken to Harborview Medical Center. According to KING photojournalist Jim Scott, the sideways vehicle in the picture was parked, not occupied.

  2. yeah. is someone going for a record here?
    .
    i can’t imagine the force required to turn a parked jeep on its side… let alone the momentum which would carry the car/missile on to damage 5 more cars after the impact.
