West Seattle Crime Watch: Car abandoned in startling spot

The “fishbone” bridge along Longfellow Creek in North Delridge is always a beautiful sight … even with something startling at one end, which was the case for a while this morning, as Rose e-mailed us to report:

As I was walking along the path from All-Star Fitness in the Dragonfly Park, I saw a tow-truck. Kinda strange. I kept walking and found another tow-truck at the bridge and asked what was going on….the nice young man pointed out to me the stolen car. It was missing the front bumper and hood. The front tires were taken off but left behind. Seattle’s finest in blue were there also.

Rose also shared the photos (thank you!).

    Wow, how did the car (and tow truck!) even get in there? Crazy, crazy!

    @ COFFEE – it is right next to the one-lane bridge. Just east of the Delridge Golf Course.

    @ Sybil – That portion of the trail has easy vehicle access.

    What year and make was the car?? Have there been any hit runs with similar year and makes? ie: with FRONT end damage?

Sorry, comment time is over.
