A bail hearing was held Thursday afternoon (Dec. 19) for a 24-year-old Tukwila man arrested in Wednesday’s horrible five-vehicle collision on SR-509 (read our previous coverage here) that caused life-threatening injuries to two people.

The court found probable cause and set bail at $200,000.

Police say that the suspect allegedly fled from the collision scene on foot but was arrested a short time later and booked into jail on investigation of vehicular assault.

According to the Washington State Patrol:

The suspect vehicle (#1) was headed eastbound on S. 116th Street when it failed to stop for a stop sign. It went over an embankment and came to rest on southbound SR-509 on its roof.

Vehicles two, three, four and five traveling southbound SR-509 approaching 128th struck it.

Vehicles one and two came to rest on left shoulder in lane two.

Vehicle three came to rest in the ditch on the right side.

Vehicle four came to rest on the right shoulder and vehicle five came to rest in lane one.

Initial reports indicate that drugs or alcohol were also involved.

Prosecutors expect to have a charging decision Friday.

    well this one less moron to fly threw the stop sign’s around here. In about 30 years of living in this area I have always kinda wonder when some one was going try to go threw that stop sign. Hopefully the other people that drive like morons around here will learn to knock it off or at lease think twice.

    When the sign says stop you stop!!
