EDMONDS — A Shoreline man, 48, is facing possible charges for a hit-and-run boat crash on Labor Day, according to Edmonds police.
Shortly after 8:30 p.m., the man allegedly was driving a 22-foot boat in Puget Sound when he crashed into a 28-foot vessel near the Edmonds ferry terminal. The suspect appeared to be driving at a high speed, witnesses told authorities.
The boat that was hit had to be towed to a nearby dock. Two people on the vessel suffered minor injuries and were treated at a nearby hospital.
Edmonds officers spoke to the suspect after he docked. He said he fled the scene of the collision because he was scared, according to a statement from police.
“The investigation showed that he had made no effort to stop at the scene of the collision, call 911 or advise Port Security of the crash after he came into the marina,” the police statement said.
Police are referring the possible hit-and-run case to the Snohomish County Prosecutor’s Office.
