$75,000 bail also set for 17th/Cambridge crash suspect

June 25, 2013 at 5:10 pm | In Crime, Delridge, West Seattle news | 17 Comments

This afternoon’s other bail hearing of West Seattle note was for the 26-year-old Seatac woman who police say was driving the van that hit a car in South Delridge early Sunday, sending two people to the hospital with serious injuries. Until today, her name wasn’t on the jail register because, police said, she did not have ID and they had trouble verifying who she was; she is listed as having two aliases (we aren’t identifying her until and unless she is charged). The police narrative says she was one of two people seen running across Delridge by police arriving at the scene; nearby residents told them she was the driver. While one officer was trying to get identification from her, the documents say, she started screaming, “I killed him! I killed him! I’ve never killed anyone before.” Police later were told that, before the crash, she was seen and heard “at a gas station just across the county line … in White Center … physically fighting with two males,” and that when those two drove away, northbound into Seattle, the van driver “drove after them at a high rate of speed in an attempt to continue the fight.” Driving northbound on 17th SW, police say, she ran a stop sign and smashed into the smaller car. One of the officers who talked with her reported “a strong odor of alcoholic intoxicants” on her breath, and that she “was also slurring her speech.” Her bail was set today at $75,000, and she is due back in court tomorrow.

  1. Jane Doe should be held without bail. She is a runner. She tried to ran from her crime and what’s to keep her from running again? Her drinking/fighting and bad temper sent two innocent young people to the I.C.U. She deserves to be kept in jail–for a long long long time.

    And Logan, you hang in there. All your friends are thinking of you and your girlfriend. Best wishes to your families.

  2. I hope this loser doesn’t have any family to bail her our and sits and rots in there. She doesn’t deserve to be free while 2 have severe injury’s caused by her actions.

  3. She sounds like a great catch. I hope the people she injured are doing better each day. This was so avoidable.

  4. When the name is released, I’d like to see it printed here.
    Who does that?? Who t-bones someone’s car and then dashes away without care for the ones they hit? I don’t care how drunk you are; that goes down with her character (and the passenger she ran with).

  5. If the suspect is charged, as per our policy, we’ll publish the name.

  6. Best thoughts to Logan and the other victim. Any status on their condition? Any status on the condition of Red, the runner struck in the hit and run accident? Prayers to all that they will continue to improve.

  7. ACG, I am checking with Harborview re: “Red” as several people have asked about her today. I am hesitant to ask again about Logan because, while the hospital media team told me “serious,” several commenters who seemed to be friends and/or family said emphatically that it was “critical,” so I will leave any further commenting to them. I don’t have direct contact with family in either case, but would welcome it at any time if anyone wants to send an update outside the comment sections – editor@westseattleblog.com – TR

  9. Getting the names of charged perpetraors out, and into the neighborhoods gives solice to an old gum shoe like me. Distrubuting photos, like in the case of that Alan Polevia loser, are something Perry and I used to fantasize about.

  10. @ loi: WTF does this mean? “The “suspect” has family nd we gin ride for her! Good bye”
    .
    HUH? That makes NO SENSE. Perhaps it’s the gin you mention.

  11. Loi–I’ll say what I want. Stay in school, learn how to speak, read & write in English before trying to show out on an online blog. In the future, when you address me–make sense!

  12. Hoping for a full recovery for Logan and a long incarceration for the “suspect”.

  13. The female patient who was in the car with Logan is a friend of mine. I saw her on Monday and am planning to visit her again tomorrow night. My circle of friends is checking on her daily. Her family lives out of town but have come to Seattle to be with her.

    Out of respect to her and her family I am choosing not to release her name, but so many people seem to be wishing her well that I don’t think they’d mind my telling you that while her injuries are serious she is doing very well and in good spirits despite her injuries and her concern for Logan.

    I have not met Logan, but heard a lot about him through my friend and my heart and prayers go out to him for a speedy recovery.

  16. WSB, any news of the real name of our Jane Doe.
    I am very close with Logan’s sister. So many of our lives have been flipped upsidedown because of this Jane Doe.
    Keep all the prayers, and positive energy flowing for the Wicker family.
