Moped Driver Suspected of DUI
A 27-year-old man suffered serious injuries to his face after a car collided with his moped, said Seattle Police. Around 1:30a.m. Saturday morning the man was riding his moped northbound on 25th Avenue approaching the intersection at East Spring Street. Police say at the same time a 51-year-old man, driving a Chrysler New Yorker, was also approaching the intersection heading eastbound on East Spring Street. The two collided in the intersection causing the moped driver to be thrown off his bike and into the street. Police say he was wearing a helmet but did not have a face shield. Officers evaluated the victim at the scene after he showed signs of driving under the influence. He was taken to Harborview Medical Center with serious but non-life-threatening injuries. The driver of the car was also evaluated for DUI but officers say he was not impaired. The crash remains under investigation.
