King County: At approximately 8:05am this morning, August 18, 2021, Washington State Patrol (WSP) communications received a 9-1-1 call advising of a collision SB I-405 to NB I-5.

Once troopers arrived they observed a BMW X3 with heavy front end damage and a Mercedes.  The two gentlemen at the scene advised that the BMW was involved in a one car collision and they stopped to see if the driver was ok.  One Good Samaritan was in the Mercedes and the other was driving a Ford F150. The driver of the BMW brandished a handgun and carjacked the F150 and fled north on I-5.

The description given of the suspect was a black male in his 20s, 5’10” to 6’00” with dread locks wearing blue pants a green long sleeved shirt.

Below is an image similar to the vehicle stolen from the scene and the distinct tool box in the bed.  The other photo is the actual vehicle that was involved in the one car collision which ended up being a stolen vehicle.

 If located or observed please call 911, DO NOT contact the car or driver as they are armed.

WSP detectives are seeking additional witnesses and anyone with information that would help to identify the suspect or the whereabouts of the stolen truck.  Please contact Detective Ruth Medeiros at (425) 401-7719 or by email at [email protected]
