Renton Police are investigating a two-car collision that seriously injured five people on Tuesday night, March 7.
Just before midnight, police responded to the scene where a stolen Kia carrying five passengers reportedly ran a red light heading north on Rainier Avenue and collided with a 2015 Toyota Highlander, driving westbound on Airport Way.
According to Renton Police, the force of the crash caused the Kia to careen into the parking lot of the Renton Laundry on Rainier Avenue.
The driver of the stolen Kia, an 18-year-old man, was left with minor injuries while four of the five passengers — all juveniles — were sent to Harborview Medical Center in Seattle due to more serious injuries. One passenger was intubated at the scene of the collision, according to police.
The driver of the Toyota, who had no other passengers in her vehicle, appeared to have only minor injuries, police said.
After being medically cleared from Valley Medical Center in Renton, the Kia driver was arrested for investigation of possession of a stolen vehicle, two counts of vehicular assault and five counts of reckless endangerment.
