No one was injuried in the hit-and-run

A DUI hit-and-run on Interstate 5 near Lynnwood ended with an arrest in Bothell Friday morning.

Around 9:25 a.m., the driver of a 2009 Toyota Camry struck a 2017 Mazda traveling southbound on I-5 in the Lynnwood area, according to trooper Heather Axtman, Washington State Patrol public information officer.

The victim, who called the hit-and-run into police and remained on the line, continued to follow the Toyota after the interaction.

The two vehicles exited onto Interstate 405, heading south. The Toyota struck a cement barrier and spun out but continued southbound on I-405.

The Toyota and Mazda then exited onto State Route 527, heading south.

The Toyota parked briefly in a parking lot at SR 527 and 237th Street Southeast. The driver then left the parking lot, striking a curb.

Bothell police stopped the Toyota in the 19100 block of Bothell Way Northeast around 9:40 a.m.

There was “severe front end damage” to the Toyota, Axtman said.

No one was injured.

A state trooper placed the driver of the Toyota in custody for driving under the influence and hit-and-run.
