From eyewitness reports, including my own: At about 1pm this afternoon, a Bronco XLT driving east up E Denny Way lost control, clipped three parked cars and crashed into the corner of the Abonita Apts./Twice Sold Tales building. The driver of the vehicle, a middle-aged Caucasian male (5’9″ – 6′) with light sandy hair and light colored pants, was seen walking away from the scene. He was possibly accompanied by a passenger, a middle-aged Caucasian female. Both seemed uninjured by the accident and were last seen heading up E. Denny Way toward Broadway. He seemed uninjured by the accident and were last seen heading up E. Denny Way toward Broadway.
No bystanders were injured in the crash. The Abonita Building only seems to have sustained superficial damage. Two of the cars hit by the Bronco only sustained minor damage, though the third had a huge scrape up all of its side panels facing the street.
Jamie, the owner of the Capitol Hill Twice Sold Tales, says she’s relieved that no one was hurt in the crash and that she’ll likely use pictures of the incident as her new business cards.
