WEST SEATTLE CRIME WATCH: Stolen 1992 white Nissan pickup (update: found); hit-and-run driver damages apartment building

Two reports in West Seattle Crime Watch:

STOLEN PICKUP: WSB readers have been immensely helpful lately in finding stolen vehicles (like Zack’s van). Maybe you can help find Sean‘s pickup truck:

1992 Nissan pickup, stolen in the Admiral District (Wednesday) night, 4-19. I have owned it since 2000. Family history in every dent.

As shown, plates are B27758P. We’ll add the police-report # when we get it.

UPDATE: Found.

HIT-RUN: The photo’s from a reader who says this happened at Maris (4722 Fauntleroy Way SW) around 2:30 am:

No injuries, so no SFD dispatch; SPD confirms the driver fled after the crash, but the car was not stolen, and the incident remains under investigation.

    It appears that a yellow fire hydrant was struck and is protruding from the hole in the shattered windows.  Yet the area appears dry.  How is that possible?

      We’ve explained that before, I’d have to find the link, but hydrants do not all explode in free flow if hit.

        Ms R,

        THX 1KK not only for WSB’s comprehensive local news coverage, but the context.   And the information about all the newfangled gadgets we encounter.  It’s difficult to keep up.  Next time I’ll research the question before bothering you.   WSC

    Leaving the scene ought to be an automatic DUI.    Sure, they will be caught because of vehicle registration, but long since sobered up.

      What if they are only guilty of poor judgment, hit and run, but not intoxicated?

      • Marina April 21, 2022 (4:34 pm)

        Then don’t flee the scene?

          Guys are we really discussing why it’s not allowed for our government to just convict you automatically if a crime they can’t prove you committed? It doesn’t matter if you’re mad or want justice, there’s a reason it doesn’t work that way. And sure, I bet you can show me times where it does, and I’ll show you a law that to me shouldn’t exist in its current form due to it being antithetical to the idea of being innocent until proven guilty.

        Or it will magically become a stolen vehicle… the plot thickens.   And as for the stolen white Nissan truck there is family history for every dent, pray tell? LOL!!!

        Just make the penalty for fleeing the scene worse than that for a DUI. Game over.

Sorry, comment time is over.
