On Friday afternoon, Jan. 3, 2020, a man was found slumped over the wheel of a truck near SW 148th Street and Ambaum Blvd. SW.

Police say that earlier in the day the man was involved in an accident between his pick-up truck and another car.

The pick-up truck had a broken axle, so the driver – a 65-year old male – drove it around the corner to wait for a tow.

After several hours of waiting for a tow truck, a passerby noticed that the driver was slumped over.

Police responded and began CPR, and also applied an AED (Automated External Defibrillator).

Aid arrived and continued CPR, and the man was transported to Highline Medica Center. His current condition is unknown.

“We don’t know if he had a medical issue or if this was caused by an earlier collision, all part of the investigation,” Sgt. Ryan Abbott told The B-Town Blog.

King County Sheriff’s MARR Detectives are investigating.
